The True Tree of Life
April 15, 2019 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey I love Easter! To me, it commemorates the ultimate Clash of the Titans. It was Love versus evil and death in a smack-down fight, and Love won.

My old life could have beenRead More
A Thanks to Those Who Served
March 26, 2019 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey I am a Veteran of the United States Air Force. I was a communication specialist in the mid-1980s stationed in Europe.

To Have and to Hold

These ideas direct me to seek out and reflect on the things I have to be grateful for. The other night I was given this question, “What 3 thingsRead More
Hey, What’s Your Problem?!
March 3, 2019 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey One thing we know, hurting people hurt people. Pain and offense are spreading like a virus.

What Matters Most
February 24, 2019 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey I recently caught myself giving Jesus advice. I kid you not.

I was presuming toRead More

The Lie Eve Believed
February 3, 2019 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey Last week I discussed disappointment. This week I want to look at its antonym, contentment. While contentment may be the antonym of disappointment, I think it’s synonymous with joy and peace. It’s the feeling inside that says “I am satisfied and happy.” We all crave it, and when we have it, itRead More
