Carr Fire

New Day for Redding

New Day for Redding

On all three floors, people could read their bios, see their photos, and then admire their portrait.  As the black cloths were unveiled and each hero read and saw their impact on this city, a wave of honor, kindness, and generosity swept into our government halls, echoing to the fabric of our city’s call that we have overcome and become Redding Strong.

Creators of Light

Creators of Light

As children of light we get to let the God of compassion fuel us into action as we believe that who we are and what we have matters. Our creativity in the hands of God can cause a ripple effect that fills the greatest need and overcome the powers of evil.

What if there’s a song inside you for someone struggling with depression? A dance waiting to be choreographed that displays true love? What does being a child of light mean to a world looking for hope? 

Out of the Ashes

Out of the Ashes

Everywhere I go, people are talking about the fires, and the condition of their neighborhood, house, or how their family and friends made it through.  People who were total strangers have been brought together, and are engaging in heartfelt conversation.

This national disaster is something we have gone through and weathered together, and now we are committed to being “Redding Strong” together, as we begin to work at rebuilding our city, displaying the glory of God in our unified efforts.

The Fourth Man In The Fire

The Fourth Man In The Fire

Some people may think that when we are thrown into the fire we are defeated and left in despair, but when we see the 4th Man in the fire we are filled with hope for our future.

If you are going through fiery trials beyond your control, remember to look for the 4th Man in the fire, and know that He is there and will stand with you no matter what!  

And then, when you have gone through the fire with the 4th Man, you can begin to reveal Him to others through your creative expressions to bring comfort and hope to those in the fire.
