Hide It Under a Bushel? Maybe.

November 8, 2013 | by: Josh Fenska | 0 Comments

Many of us as little children sang, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine." And we declared emphatically, "Hide it under a bushel? NO! I'm gonna let it shine." For my part--even though I had absolutely no clue what a "bushel" was--I knew for sure that it was absurdly ridiculous to hide a light under a bushel. "What kind of fool would do that?", I thought. Over the last year I've had to realize that I'm the kind of fool who would do that. I've met "the Light of the World," in whom is "light and life," and yet, rather than living like a missionary among those walking in darkeness, I spend a lot of my life with the light (functionally) hidden. The Holy Spirit has helped me see that I have some repenting to do here.... Keep Reading

An Open Door

November 1, 2013 | by: Josh Anderson | 0 Comments

Great news! The Lord has opened a door for our church to love some of our young neighbors. Through some divinely-orchestrated circumstances, we have an unusual inroad to an elementary school on the East side of Aurora. Five days a week, nearly 800 Kindergarteners through fifth graders gather to learn and play at Oak Park Elementary School. When they arrive at school on these cold mornings, many of the kids show up without jackets, hats, or gloves.... Keep Reading
