Identification Documents

This last week during our Wednesday night prayer time and study, we talked about believers’ identity in Christ. In a world with so much confusion regarding who we are and how we see ourselves I encouraged those present to not identify themselves by their achievements, feelings, circumstances, or roles but to discover their unique identity…

Meet our new logo!

Change is in the air and we as a staff felt that it was time to redesign a logo that better communicates the vision and context in which BBC finds itself in. So let me give you some of the things we considered throughout the design process. The idea to go “green” had many factors:…

Houston We Have Problem

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity, or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor;  in what seems to be a technique to intimidate pastors who are in disagreement of Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance (called the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance or…

The End of an Era

Ehh, What’s up Doc? Saturday morning cartoons are no more. Cartoons dominated the Saturday morning line up from the 1960’s but this last weekend marked the first Saturday with no block of cartoons on major network channels. It’s a little sad actually. I, for one, can remember waking up on Saturday morning, pouring myself a…

How Can These Dry Bones Live?

In Ezekiel 37, the prophet receives a vision from the Lord concerning His people.  In that vision, the prophet Ezekiel is shown a valley of dry bones representing a people whose hope had died and who were lifeless in their faith. Then, God mercifully and powerfully calls Ezekiel to speak to the bones saying, “O…

Automatic Autonomy

You and I come face to face with the temptation to be “autonomous” every single day. Autonomy (from the Greek work autos, “self,” and  nomos, “law”)  means choosing oneself as the source for determining what is right and wrong.  We can live dependent on God, relying on His will for our lives or we can…

God’s Providence and a Hawk’s Migration

This Millarc family has had a very special visitor perch itself in our backyard this week; a beautiful broad winged hawk. While at breakfast the other day, the girls and I were amazed at the beauty and majesty of such a large bird of prey, which landed just feet from our table. We often see…
