MS letter from Stuart Brooks

Dear Friends, I’ve been wanting to write to you for some time to tell you about what’s going on with me, but I haven’t been in a good enough place to do it. In May of 2013, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.  My symptoms were that my right hand started to go numb.  Since it was the end of my second semester of class work towards a PhD in English at UH, I attributed…

My Story

Everyone has a story about why they attend a certain church.  Some stories are simple.   Our story…well…it is simply not-so-simple.  But, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Following our wedding we started our life together as a military family.  14 years and 10 moves later…

Count Your Many Blessings

Many years ago a famous song evangelist was traveling with some missionaries through Africa. His assignment was to lead the praise-worship time before the missionary brought the sermon. The trip had been long. Heat and sickness had bothered the little team of itinerant travelers. The food was always of unfamiliar local flavors versus an American diet. Many nights they…

On Being Transformed

My spiritual life is usually a complete mess. I look at my bookshelves and marvel that anyone even attempts to write books about spirituality, all those pieces of paper bound together with string and glue, with all their chapters and subheadings and beginnings and endings and ability to be alphabetized.  All that cohesion. My spiritual journey is not so hygienic.  I…
