The Messy Table with Britton Bill: [Going Beyond Surface Level]

The latest episode from The Messy Table  is hot off the press (and one day early due to Fall Break)! This is fantastic news because: (1) I could use a midweek pick-me-up right about now, and (2) life is JUST BETTER with Britton Bill. Britton is wife to Isaiah, mama to sweet Blaine, a pastor at Life.Church, and one of my very favorite people.

We carved out some time for her to come over—she picked up Starbucks and I reheated some chocolate chip pumpkin bread from LifeGroup the night before. We chatted about life and what she’s been learning, as well as tackled some questions we’re all asking ourselves: How can I go deeper in my relationships? How do I get beyond surface level and beneath the superficial? How in the world do we discern God’s will in the face of tough decisions?

“We can’t grow without getting uncomfortable.”

It’s good, y’all. Reminders I need this very day! Life isn’t perfect, but God is doing important work. So whether you’re driving, getting some exercise, taking a break from work, folding laundry, sitting in the carpool line, or hiding in the bathroom from your toddler—grab (or reheat) your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us!


“Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
