“Bee” Active: Missional Motivation from Katie Garcia

If you’re like me, then the desire to live a missional life comes with a whole host of inner conflict. Where do I start? Is it effective? Is it sustainable? Am I giving fish or teaching to fish? What if I disrupt a local economy? Am I incentivizing unwanted behaviors? Am I enabling? Am I fully utilizing my gifts? What […]

Response to Refugee Crisis in Iraq

My name is Megan Engel.  My husband and I have been participating in liturgy at Vox since April.  As I watch the news unfold about the horrors in Iraq, the mass executions and countless people fleeing for their lives, my heart is breaking.  Please join me in bringing about change in this awful situation. As ISIS mounts its campaign of violence within Iraq […]

The Hupe’s Dish on Thailand 8.17.14

Vanakam (Greetings) from Chennai!

You may recall the tall giant who sometime early January timidly approached the mic and asked you to pray for her while she was in India. That giant was me! What then seemed like a significant amount of time now draws quickly—and cruelly–to an end. Crossing the airport barricade in January, I didn’t know what to expect, all I knew was to be expectant. […]

Wednesday Washing

One of the things I have come to love most about Austin is the abundance of passionate people. Passionate about coffee, food, graffiti, running, naked bike rides…You name it, there is someone preachin’ it here. Vox Veniae, our church community, happens to be incredibly passionate about being a source of hope and a helpful presence in the often-hurting East Austin […]
