For the Witness

Both truth and love must be inseparable. Apart from this duality, vain utterances and deceptive expressions are communicated. A movement within the church holds that love alone encompasses the witness. If truth is not at the core of a testimony, though, then how can anyone say that love is the motive?


Tracing Eden with the Cross

Considering my own life and seeing the similarities with others of the Christian Faith, I can say with certainty that one of the most costly failures that we all experience is the equivocating, mistaking, and substituting of wisdom for/with knowledge or intelligence.

Reflections of Gratefulness

This time of year, many of us will sit and contemplate what we are thankful for... The trend is to just list items or people -- and there's nothing wrong with that. But I thought I would take a different approach and reflect back on things that have happened to me over these last two years.

Thanksgiving Wishes

Greetings from the desk of me, Greg, on this week of Thanksgiving. We wanted to take a week off from recording and post what we here at Still Ripples are thankful for.

I will start by giving thanks for a loving God who sent His Son for our sins. Without this, we would have nothing to be thankful for, so I start here. I am thankful for the Bible and the wealth of information that God shares with us through it. I am thankful for the love that God shows us daily. I am also thankful for my very wonderful and supportive wife who, over the past 9 and a half years, has stood by my side helping me in my ministries.

I am thankful for the team that God has brought together that is Still Ripples: Brian and I started this over 3 years ago, and it has been an amazing journey building this together and the friendship that flourishes through it; and Craig Gilley who came back into my life after 18 years and has become an invaluable part of the Still Ripples team.

I am thankful for a church that trusts me enough to allow me to work with their youth. I am thankful for a family that loves and supports me. I am thankful for my job that helps people who need a helping hand. There is so very much I am thankful for, and I could go on and on, but for the time, I will end it here. May you have a very wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.
