Easter: What You Need to Do

Posted by Dave Clayton on

If you weren't at church last night, then you missed the announcement regarding Easter at Ethos. I will repeat the information here, because we need lots of help from you guys. Why are we doing something different for Easter?  For whatever reason, there are certain times each year...

Sunday Night Reflections

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Sorry I have been absent from the blogosphere recently. To be completely honest, I just hit a wall last week. After returning from our PCB Mission Trip over a week ago, I was just exhausted, and thought it would be good to take a break from blogging. Anyways, I'm back.  It was a...

New Life 03/30/2009

In case you haven't heard, Nick Shong made the decision to give his life to Jesus this past Wednesday. Around 9 pm, nearly 30 of us circled around a friend's hot tub as we heard Nick confess his love for Jesus, and watch as he died to himself through baptism. What a night! If you see Nick, give...

You and God

Posted by Dave Clayton on

This morning’s post will be short, sweet, and to the point, but I think it has the ability to change the course of your hour, your day, your week, maybe even your life. Whatever you are doing right now (besides reading this blog) stop. Turn off the phone, turn down the volume...

Lead, Search, Love 03/16/2009

Over the last several months I have gotten hooked on the Book of Ezekiel. One of my favorite passages is found in Ezekiel 34. In this passage, God is upset because the leaders of Israel have failed to be good leaders. He is using the analogy of a shepherd, and basically God paints the picture...

I'm an Idiot 03/15/2009

Posted by Dave Clayton on

The other night, I was on campus with Brandon. We had both spoken on a panel that went fairly well. Afterwards, we had to rush over to a training session for a mission team we are leading in a few months. It was late. I had been on campus for 13 straight hours. I can honestly say that patience...

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...
