Angela Zimmerman: A Change Of Allegiance

Angela Zimmerman: A Change Of Allegiance

In our last two stories, we get a glimpse of God’s command to Abram to leave his country and his father’s household and go to a country God will show him. We also teased out God’s promise to Abram in Genesis 12:2, which is a stark anthesis to man’s desire to make...

Angela Zimmerman: God Didn’t Bless the Brick

“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.” (Genesis 12:2 ESV)   Read and ponder Genesis 12:2 for a moment. It should be a passage that stops us in our usually-always cursory habits of...

I was invited by Yvonne Miller and she didn’t have a great explanation of what NextGen was but the invitation was there. Thanks, Yvonne! I wasn’t sure what to expect. The place I was at, the things God was doing, I really didn’t think I needed to upset my schedule...

Chris Brown: Processing My Heart for Christmas

Recently as I was at my first “in person” Nextgen conference, I was there to just be. I had not gotten permission to do that in a long time. As I was listening to some of the speakers, I was taking in so much. I was learning and processing. At one point both the...
