Joyless Work
by Tim Canosa on November 20th, 2023
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.Colossians 3:23-24I’ve always had a patchy relationship with work. I like it, but I hate it. Like many of you, I don’t want to work. So when I see Paul say, whatever you do, work a...  Read More

Faith Cares
by Tim Canosa on November 10th, 2023
15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.James 2:15-17One thing a lot of people are sick of these days are empty words. We’ve had enough of it from politicians ...  Read More

For the Poor
by Tim Canosa on November 6th, 2023
Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the Lord your God.Leviticus 19:10It’s really hard to convey how radical Leviticus 19:10 is. In the Ancient world poverty was an astronomical reality. Some historians suggest that up to 90% of people lived just above or below what we would call a subsistence level. That...  Read More
