Holy Spirit, You Are Welcome Here

One of my new favorites in our worship song list at South Campus is simply titled “Holy Spirit.”  It’s uncomplicated lyrically and musically but is powerful as it directly addresses the Holy Spirit in the chorus: Holy Spirit, you are welcome here Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere Your glory, Lord, is what…

Happy 1st Birthday, Eastwood’s South Campus

It’s hard to believe that a year has already gone by since the launch of Eastwood’s new South Campus building, but that’s exactly how long it’s been.  Our first service in the new building was Palm Sunday, March 29, 2015.  Time flies when you’re serving the Lord! South Campus was a God-sized vision, and by…

Enemies of the Harvest

In January we preached and prayed for a great harvest, but we know there are many enemies of the harvest.  Gardeners and farmers have to guard against all sorts of pests that look to steal the harvest, but they also have to work against time so that they don’t miss the harvest.  Harvest season comes,…

I Thought Jesus Was Bringing Peace?

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men,’” (Luke 2:13-14, KJV).  This awesome event happened right after the angel of the Lord announced to the shepherds near Bethlehem that Jesus the Christ…

The Rescue: Hope

Today we begin our season of Advent, which is the Christian season of preparation for Christmas. The word “advent” comes from the Latin word adventus, which means “coming” or “visit.” In the Advent season, we keep in mind both “advents,” both “visits” of Christ, the first in Bethlehem and the second yet to come. Because…

How to Attain Your Leadership Vision

How are we going to get there? What a great question!  However, the answer depends on where “there” is.  You see, an effective strategy, which answers the how question, must begin with a vision, a destination.  If I’m going to Nashville, I’ll get on I-65 southbound, but if I’m heading to Louisville, I’m going to…
