Obey 03/14/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Have you ever found yourself standing face to face with a decision you knew God was calling you to make? Maybe God was calling you to do something very specific — such as change your job, move to another city, or make what seemed to be a huge personal sacrifice. How did you...

Psalm 34:4 03/13/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I’m not sure if any one verse has ever captured my heart for such an extended period of time as Psalm 34:4. I stumbled across this verse a little over a year ago, and I find myself quoting it nearly every day. I’m not sure why this verse has taken root in my...

Beer Commercial Gospel 03/11/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I love Beer Commercials. As far as I’m concerned, beer commercials are always the best. In recent years, ESPN and Sonic have gained some serious credibility in the funny commercial department, but I would still argue that they are playing for second place. Beer commercials...

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

Posted by Dave Clayton on

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...

Congrats

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...
