Honoring God’s Name

Welcome to the fourth week and the third command in our study of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever quietly discarded a name tag without wearing it when someone spelled your name incorrectly? If you have a unique spelling of your name, you’ve probably at least considered doing this. We want to be known by the correct name — and have it spelled correctly! Our names are part of our identities, so naturally they become a topic of conversation. This week we're going to discuss names, specifically how we honor the name and character of the Lord.

Reflecting His Image

Greetings, Blog Readers. Our Monday posts this summer include several questions related to our journey through Jen Wilkin's book Ten Words to Live By and Exodus 20:1-17. They are meant to compliment the chapter and as points to discuss with friends, not as a replacement for her excellent questions for reflection. Today we're digging into Exodus 20:4-6 as we consider the undiminished worship of our Creator God.

God is Enough

Welcome to our second week in the Ten Commandments. We got a good start last week with a look at the introduction to Jen Wilkin's book "Ten Words to Live By" and discussed the beauty found in the law of the Lord. This week we're excited to discuss the first full chapter — and first commandment. If you haven't signed up for a conversation group yet, it's not too late. Now, join us as we Pause, Ponder, and Pray in Exodus 19 and 20 and Colossians 3:5-17.

Life-giving Beauty

Editor's Note: Today we're officially beginning our study of the Ten Commandments and the first week of groups discussing Exodus 20:1-17 and Jen Wilkin's book Ten Words to Live By. We have groups meeting Tuesday evenings, Wednesday mornings, Thursday mornings (two options, one with childcare), and Friday mornings (with children for a nature activity). If you haven't yet registered to join a group, we encourage you to so now via this link. Our Monday posts in the coming weeks will include simple Pause, Ponder, and Pray prompts to supplement the questions in Wilkin's book, while Wednesdays you'll find Process and Practice prompts to take you a bit deeper in the text of Exodus 20 and Psalm 19. Each week we will also share audio recordings from Andi Hines (the Ten Commandments on Mondays) and Sara Nelson (Psalm 19 on Wednesdays).
