To love Little Rock back to Life
So many people seem to be searching for something, something that's missing, something bigger, something beyond them, something . . . more.

Canvas Community Church is a community that lives life together, worships together, serves together, and exists together for the purpose of loving the people of Little Rock into this Life.

For me, [worry is] self-centered, self deifying arrogance that has germinated in a complete distrust of God’s ability to actually do what God says God will do.

So many people simply don’t know why we do what we do at church. It’s time to learn.
A thought occurred to me this morning, Good Friday 2014: A lot of people have had the crap beat out of them by the cross I think. Often times here in the south we have been exposed to extremely conservative and evangelical beliefs and denominations which, Puritanical in their history as well as today, have[…]
If you haven’t seen Noah, and don’t want it ruined, don’t read this…FYI, there’s a flood and everyone but Noah’s peeps die. Surprise. My wife and I went to see Noah this past Friday night and it wasn’t quite what I expected. Beyond the fact that it had Percy Jackson acting like a brat, Hermione[…]
There are 8 things that will destroy an addict’s chances for sobriety. Stunningly, those same 8 things will do the same to the church and Christians who have no addictive qualities what so ever. In this post I introduce this idea, why, and in proceeding posts I expose the 8 emotions/feelings/character traits that can cause irreparable damage to the church’s “safe” atmosphere.
