A Reflection on Black History Month

In recent weeks at IBC, we’ve been discussing the importance of wrestling with our own personal past—our life story—to better understand our present and God’s intentions for our future. This is a vitally important part of our ongoing spiritual growth and development.

    A True Welcome

    Two names immediately come to mind when I hear the word "hospitality"—Jonathan and Bre. About a year ago I had the privilege of traveling to Kansas in order to help my friend Daniel propose to his girlfriend. The only problem is that I don't know a single person who lives in Kansas.

    The Beauty of Community When Life Feels Broken

    You may remember Eric Liddell, an Olympic gold medalist runner, Christian missionary and inspiration for the movie Chariots of Fire.

    Rich in Mercy

    My phone was ringing. It was his Mother’s Day Out program. I checked my watch to see if he had made it an hour. My heart sank, and I could hear the conversation before it even took place.

    “Mrs. Cordero?”

    “This is she.”

    “We need you to come get your son right now.”
