The Key Ingredient for Dealing with Life

Our PERSPECTIVE of life and all the anxious moments that come our way either drive us in the direction of fear and despair or they move us toward depending on something or someone beyond ourselves. Life has a barrel full of challenging issues for each one of us.  It seems as though those issues are bigger and heavier than ever before. That…

Dry, Safe Roads

It is all a matter of PERSPECTIVE… how you see the situation always determines how you behave in it.  Everyday we move in one direction or another determined by how we perceive the situation and the surrounding circumstances.  Late last night (a cold and rainy night here is St. Louis), I was driving on a semi-rural road thinking that it was dry…

Back to Perspective

Welcome to 2018 and welcome back to Perspective… a serious look at what Paul wrote to the believers in Jesus in Philippi…a letter we call Philippians. Much of fall 2017 found us looking at this letter together and seeing if anything that Paul thought was critically important for them might also be relevant for us.  Fortunately, we found all sorts of things…

Four Enduring Qualities for Christmas

This year we have been wrestling around with four qualities that are obvious, or embedded just under the surface, in the events surrounding Jesus’ birth a few years ago (ok… a lot more that a few years ago).  All four of these qualities are transcendent – meaning they are not limited to the capacity of mankind, but are defined by the majesty…

Helping Quest be Quest

We’ve talked on many occasions about the church being people, not a building. Quest is made up of PEOPLE that share the hope of Christ with each other and our community. If it weren’t for you, one of our AMAZING Questers, this church wouldn’t be what it is. We have so many amazing volunteers that make all of the necessary things happen.…

The Most Full Time of the Year

The most Wonder[FUL]… The most Peace[FUL]… …and now The most Hope[FUL]… To all of these, we say “really?” Are you kidding? Are you crazy? Are you out of your mind? Have you read the news lately? Have you watched the news? Have you listened to the radio? Have you talked with your neighbors? Have you talked with your kids? With all of…

Advent Conspiracy: Haiti 2018

From the very beginning of Quest, we have had a vision of seeking the welfare of the community in which we live.  We understood that when we seek the welfare of others, God would give us ours in the process. Conversely, we understood that when we seek our own welfare first, at our core, we are simply serving ourselves. Jesus told us…

Core Qualities in Christmas

Beyond all the hoopla of Christmas, and beyond all the turmoil of our world, there are divine qualities that endure and enrich the human experience.  This year, we’re focusing on four of these qualities as we approach Christmas Day. I am convinced that these qualities are the very thing that can use to make sense of all the hoopla as well as…

Four Qualities of Christmas that are Easy to Miss

Christmas 2017… once again one of  “high holy seasons” is upon us: Christmas.  It is interesting that Christmas was not even a ‘thing’ celebrated in Christian churches until the 336 AD, when the Emperor Constantine institutionalized it as official in the Roman Empire.  The incarnation of Christ was certainly understood and celebrated by Christians prior to that, but the ‘platforming’ of it…
