In our reading today Paul explains the accusations to a new courtroom. Unsure how to handle Paul’s case, the governor Felix calls for help and yet again Paul is sent to jail to wait. What I love is that Paul uses this time of waiting as an opportunity to share the gosp...

In our devotions this week everything that Paul has tried to do since he came to Jerusalem has ended in a riot. From purifying himself, to giving testimony to sharing with the Sanhedrin…everything has ended in a riot and now he's a prisoner. Plus! There are a bunch of...

If you’ve ever started a new job or can think back to the first time you stepped into GWAC or any new environment…you know the feeling, right? That feeling of unease: What is happening? Where do I go? What am I supposed to be doing? You’re nervous that you’re going to...
