Why We’re Protestant

Nate’s new book is out! Why We’re Protestant: An Introduction to the Five Solas of the Reformation “How do you discern true vs. false Christianity? In the days of the Protestant Reformation, the core tenets of the faith were strenuously examined. In the end, the Reformers maintained that at the heart of the Christian faith stood five main credos: sola Scriptura, sola gratia, sola fide, solus Christus, and soli Deo gloria. This book examines these five “solas” and makes a definitive case for why we’re Protestant.”

Your Gifts are not for you

In this video Trillia Newbell, Blair Linn, and Rosaria Butterfield discuss gifts in the church. “We need to change how we view the gifts, and we need to change how we view the church and see it as a whole body with many parts, every part needed, and to work in love to exercise this in love.”

70 Prompts for Praising God

This is neat! A good one to print out and stick in your Bible or journal. Or just sit for a moment and praise God as you read through the list. “How majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens… When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the starts, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him… How majestic is your name in all the earth.” (Psalm 8).

For the Car Ride

My husband, Pastor Nate Pickowicz, is preaching through Colossians at our church. And this sermon has had me pondering Christ the last few days. It’s a good one! Christ Exalted Over All Creation (Colossians 1:15b-17)
