Posted by Kim Corey on 1/16/20

My kids don’t get it, but I love the Hallmark Christmas movies. I understand that they are predictable, but I still love them.

Posted by Kim Corey on 10/31/19

Love One Another - May 19, 2019

Posted by Kim Corey on 6/17/19

One of my favorite books is The Road Less Traveled by F. Scott Peck. It begins with the premise that life is difficult and, when we accept the notion that life is difficult, then life becomes easy. That concept seems inconsistent at first but, when you reflect on it ... Read More »

Posted by Kim Corey on 6/17/19

The Gospel reading this Fifth Sunday of Lent is one of my personal favorites for several reasons. First, it reminds me of why Jesus came to walk side-by-side with us in the first place – to save us, to forgive us and most importantly, to teach us to love ... Read More »

It Might as Well Start With You - February 24, 2019

Posted by Kim Corey on 6/17/19

Perhaps your first thought when you hear the Gospel this weekend is: “I need to talk to my bank and find out if they are Christian-based. Then I will ask them if they believe in the Gospel. I will ask them if they really expected me to pay them ... Read More »
