This Samaritan Life 03/10/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I read a really intriguing article by Tim Stafford. I am going to post a few excerpts of it on this blog. Hopefully it will help us think through what it looks like to be followers of Jesus in a city where “being Christian” is more often a category on your...

Under Age 03/09/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

When is it that we become adults? I know the legal answer is 18. But come on, I don’t think any of us are really under the allusion that we were adults on our 18th birthday. Maybe we could buy cigarettes, vote, and join the army, but at the end of the day we all knew we...

Six Minute Abs 03/07/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I was thinking today about this friend I had in college who bought one of those ridiculous ab machines. You know the kind…it is the belt that supposedly vibrates your gut into a rock hard six pack. You’ve probably seen the commercials. They always show some...

1 Timothy 1:15-16 03/06/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Yesterday as I was reading through 1 Timothy, a verse really jumped out and grabbed my heart. “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners–of whom I am the worst. But for that very...

Man Verse

Just so you know, I continually fight the temptation to give these blogs a cool and catchy title. Occasionally I am tempted to rip off a title from some obscure Fallout Boy Song, but I am always scared some of you might think I was being serious.  Anyways, I want to share a short...

New Life

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Last night was incredible. The Cannery was packed. I am amazed at how many new faces I see each week. We had several folks that drove a long way just to show their support and encouragement. For a church that is only a few months old -- that support means so much. To be honest, I wasn't too...

Today was a big day for three men in the Ethos Church Family. Terry Birthrong, Joseph Anderson, and Matthew Jackson all graduated from the Nashville Rescue Mission today. All three of these men have been a valuable part of our church family for the last couple of months. If you see them on...

One Day at a Time

Posted by Dave Clayton on

When I got home from work yesterday, I found myself suddenly bombarded with stress. It had been a great day at the office, but before I knew it, I found myself overcome by worry regarding the things I needed to get done. As I sit here this morning reflecting back on how I felt yesterday...

Foot in Mouth

Posted by Dave Clayton on

It is amazing how often I put my foot in my mouth. If I had a dollar for every time I have said to Sydney "I really wish I wouldn't have said that" or "How was I supposed to know she wasn't pregnant" or "who knew they had just broken up" -- I would be a rich man.  I hate when I do...

Fuzz Mustache?

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Hello everyone. I'm sorry for the lack of updates this week. The week has been crazy -- wonderful, but crazy. I've been getting a lot of questions in regards to our upcoming series that starts tomorrow night in Thessalonians. I'm about 99.9 % sure those questions have come from the title of the...
