The Christ Church Choir in Norway

8/27-8/29 Written by Phil Nitz I’m currently sitting in my hotel room in Haugesund, Norway, completely drained of energy in the best way possible.

Day 6 Recap – Be Imitators of Christ

Day 6 Recap – Be Imitators of Christ

I’ve been doing a lot of meditating lately about the idea of truly being a follower of Christ, a disciple of Christ, and not just someone who identifies with the name “Christian.” The word “Christian” has had such broad, loose and common use around the world that I’ve started saying simply, “I am a follower […]
