The Clash

by Aaron Moore

My sons last week finally successfully convinced me to download and begin playing the game Clash of Clans. This is bad. In this game you must build the defense of your village while strategizing how to raid and destroy the defense of other villages. You can team up with other villages to form clans and […]

Grief and Comfort

by Aaron Moore

It was a Friday morning. I was running late for work because I had stayed out late on Thursday night on a date with Sarah. Mom had babysat for us that night as she did so often. I remember coming home after our date to find mom asleep on the couch. She sat up in […]

Sam

by Aaron Moore

My family got a new puppy last week. He is an Australian Shepherd and I’m told he was bred to corral children. He sleeps a lot, maybe because the kids run him to exhaustion whenever his eyes are open. We took him to the Back to School cookout last Friday at the park. I fastened […]

Abiding Connection

by Aaron Moore

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the […]

Knowing Christ

by Aaron Moore

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus has taken hold of me”. Philippians 3:12 (NIV) I love this verse. This is a “life verse” for me. I know that can seem a bit cliché and […]

Montreat

by Aaron Moore

When I was a teenager I attended the Montreat Worship and Music conference every year. Literally every year from the time I was a rising sixth grader until I was a rising senior in High School, and then two more years after that as a young adult chaperone. People who have never been to Montreat […]

I Hate Running

by Aaron Moore

I hate running. It hurts. It’s laborious with little to show in the waistline. It’s embarrassing thinking about everyone watching my belly bounce and my red blotchy face pulse and gasp for air. In my whole life I’ve only found two ways to run that actually bring me enjoyment. First, when I run in a […]

Making music and living the Gospel

by Aaron Moore

When I started my undergrad degree in music I had no idea what I was stepping into. This discipline of music was more than a study; it was more than a collection of information and application. It was a calling to master an art of taking what was written on a page, and expressing it […]

Notes on an Israel Pilgrimage First stop: Joppa

by Aaron Moore

Acts 10:1 – 11:18 Peter’s travels have taken him from Lyyda (the ancient city of Lod, now the area of the international airport of Tel Aviv), to Joppa on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea where he has been staying with Simon the Tanner. As you may know a tanner is one who takes hides […]

Knowing the Lord

by Aaron Moore

1 Samuel 1:1-4:22 I have always loved the OT story of the boy Samuel first being introduced to the voice of God. I remember my mom reading it to me out of the Good News Bible when I was just a boy, complete with simple illustrations to drive home the narrative. I love reading it […]
