Duane Boyett - Queen Creek Campus Pastor Recently I was out on Lake Saguaro with two of my grandsons when I asked the oldest if he would like to catch a fish. Being 3 years old he of course said yes.

I’d take those every day if I could.

Kevin Larter - Junior High Pastor I recently had the chance to watch some old episodes of Looney Tunes—Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety, Elmer Fudd, the Road Runner and poor old Wile E. Coyote. I always felt bad for Wile E. Coyote. He pulled out every trick in the book to try to catch that Road Runner. He was probably single-handedly responsible for keeping the A.C.M.E. company in business with all the gadgets and ammunition he bought. But no matter how elaborate ... Read More...

By Corey Bullock – Ahwatukee Campus Pastor Disney recently came out with new movie called “Inside Out” and I got a chance to watch it with my family last week. If you don’t have young kids, I would recommend borrowing a kid or two so you don’t feel bad about going to watch this flick. My kids enjoyed it even though the concepts were significantly over their heads. This, however, is not a movie review so I will move on. One of the concepts discussed in the film is the import...
