Replaying the Revolution

In these pictures from last week, Schaeffer was “re-enacting” the Revolution in our backyard. By the way, in case you can’t see them, the Red Coats are charging up the hill. :0) BONUS: This morning just before sunrise there were four big deer feeding in our backyard. I’ve got to find my bow. ;0)

We do not have the ability in ourselves to accomplish the least of God’s tasks. This is the law of grace. When we recognize it […]

Music Wednesday

On Wednesdays at Perimeter, Ann Ferris takes piano and Schaeffer takes guitar. We plan to have Sarah Wynn learn the drums so that we can have a full worship team in place when we church plant. :0) I (McKay) have been inspired to get my own guitar back out, as Perimeter has many outstanding musicians […]
