Stretching Past the Limit

As a pastor, it is always exciting to see new people come into the church, connect with those who have been a part of the church, and eventually, call Ashworth home. And over the past few years, we have seen this happen time and time again. As exciting as it is to see new faces at Ashworth, it does begin to present challenges we have to address if we wish to continue to be the same, loving, caring church we…

Easter for Everyone

Today marks the beginning of the Lenten season. In just over forty days, we will gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Growing up as a Baptist in the South, we didn’t mark these seasons of the church year. Sure, we celebrated Easter. But I didn’t know what Lent was until moving to the Midwest. Most of the time, Lent is marked by self-denial. It is common to hear people speak of what they decided to give up for…
