By Gina Bottom My best friend had a baby last year, her first. I was there to celebrate with her in the hospital as she brought her beautiful baby girl into the world, and I was witness to her first year of life. She is much different now that she isn’t an infant, but her growth has been surprisingly slow. That’s because my friend decided she was only going to feed her daughter one big meal per week instead of the hassle of regular meals throughout the week. That sounds insane, doesn’t it? Well that’s because I made it up.
by Jonathan Clark English is a beautiful, poetic, and strange language. Most people who care about such things say the English vocabulary is the largest in the world; and yet, despite this lingual depth, many of the commonest English words are imbued with inherent ambiguity. There is probably no better example of this than the word love. Case in point: I can, with equal passion and fervor, say in one breath that I love a good hamburger, with the next that I love my wife with all my heart, and be telling the absolute truth in both instances.

by Fr Jacob Bottom Faith has a bad rap these days; even in Christian circles. Faith healings, or the lack thereof and phrases like, “Just have faith,” have narrowed our understanding of the word into some small cattle corral of meaning, where it sits scared and unsure of the future.

What does our logo mean?
We’re glad you asked! Our logo is all about the theme of rootedness. It has 3 roots, communicating our rootedness in the Triune God (Father, Son & Holy Spirit), but also the three roots to communicate our rootedness (1) in Christ , (2) in the History/Traditions of the Church, and (3) in Denton (& North Texas), a place we love and seek to serve. The tree reminds us that the story of the Bible is our story, and this is a story wrapped up in trees: a tree speaking to the brokenness of our world (the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” see Genesis 2), a tree speaking to our hope and renewal (the “Tree of Life, “Revelation 22), and that our Lord Jesus Christ came and gave his life on still another tree (or cross, Galatians 3:13) so that we may live the kind of fully human life he embodied, a life of loving God and loving neighbor. It has 7 dark green leaves for the 7 sacraments, which are central to our common life as a Church. Finally, the chalice is central, communicating that the Eucharist is what makes us into the Body of Christ, the Church (1 Cor. 10:16).
