Rain Contingencies

Hey friends. When I flew from the UK in August 2012 I imagined I was leaving rainy summers behind. Ah well. Pittsburgh does definitely feel like home now.

We are excited to share Alex Randall’s presentation on the Naturalist pathway tonight, as part of episode seven of our Nine ways to draw NEAR to God. Only two left after tonight! Sob. In which Pittsburgh park was this film made? Tune in to the YouTube livestream (search CAYG) from 6.45pm tonight. Pre-show silliness leads … Continue reading Get Outside!


Hey! I am so thankful for the Livestream team and the volunteer small group leaders who continue to do a great job in this difficult time.  You can rewatch Sunday night’s episode (6 of 9, focusing on The Enthusiast Pathway to God) here. Congrats to Lucy Sams who answered last week’s questions correctly and whose … Continue reading Enthusiastic?
