Discovery Church Prescott

While we regret that we may not be in the same physical space, our God who holds all things together will certainly continue to hold His Church together! We can still worship, learn, and give online as a church family even in this season.

We look forward to trying new ways of connecting with you, and we will be sending out more updates as we have them.

We pray for everyone who is affected to experience God’s presence and healing in this unique season.

If there is a golf course in heaven, my friend Paul is on it today.
As I was in the tall grass trying to find my sliced little white ball, Paul was already on the green.
It was that way in almost every sport except fishing and mushroom hunting. – Paul was excellent at tennis, basketball, golf and everything that had to do with a ball agility and speed.
And the gift of comic relief and his infectious laugh!
That is why I asked him to go on the first date I had with Brenda. I needed a wingman, and he came through with flying Callaway colors. Our double date was a success and 40 years later my wife Brenda and I say good bye to our good friend Paul Callaway.
Thank you for everything you gave all of us Paul.
The memories are too many to mention in a post like this.
Have a great day on those fairways in heaven my friend.
We love you buddy and will miss you BIG TIME.
Until that day.

The Three Flames


Here are a few notes from our recent message entitled “FLAMES”.

There is a book in the middle of the bible, there is this collection of love poems that are so explicit that young Jewish boys were not allowed to read them until were older.

THE THREE FLAMES OF LOVE – BED OF ROSES Of (which mine has been because of you)

Joe Cocker – (you are so beautiful)
We get a lot of mileage out of this OLD ENGLISH WORD LOVE don’t we? – “I love my wife, but I also love a new car or my best pair of pants…..I really love you BUT I ALSO LOVE TACOS’?

there are three different Hebrew words used to describe love. I have found these three things to be very important to cultivating a healthy and loving relationship.

RAYA – Friendship
The first Hebrew word used to describe love in Song of Songs is “Raya,” which means basically a friend, a companion or soulmate (Song of Songs 4:7). Basically, this special person should be our best friend.

AHAVA – Deep Affection and Commitment
The second Hebrew word is “Ahava,” which means a deep affection. It is a desire that is unquenchable, a wish to be with the other person that makes your heart ache.
love has three dimensions. — “Ahava” is a love of the will and that it is more profound than just fleeting romantic feelings. It is a desire which leads a person to make a decision to join their life to another forever. It is what makes things last. It is the commitment involved in making a relationship work. Here we see that love is very much a choice as much as it is a connection. The lovers of Song of Songs state that Ahava is as strong as death, that many rivers cannot quench “Ahava” (Song of Songs 8:7).
DOD – Passion
The third Hebrew word used in the Hebrew love poems is “Dod.” Dod means to carouse, rock or to fondle (Song of Songs 1:2). Dod is the passion and the romantic feelings that are a part of a love relationship, the physical, sexual part.

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Genesis 2:24 and Matthew 9:5

The three ingredients of love are three distinct flames. Each component that we have is a small flame. Some people may just settle for the Dod flame in their relationship. Well, this is only a small piece of the whole of love. We can keep coming back to this flame but alone it never really satisfies. Our souls ache for more. The key is to have all three flames burning as one big flame. This big flame can warm our soul and satisfy us. Anything less is less than what we were intended for. The good news is that if you are in a relationship and one of these three ingredients is missing you can still, many times, light the flames by focusing on them.

When we separate the flames there is never enough heat to keep the fire going

All three Hebrew words are the drug that keeps the love cooking!
 May you discover all three flames and pass the torch to you youngins
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails….13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,13 (NKJV)

Three Cents And A Dream

In 1910, a baby girl named Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was born in Albania. As a teenager she felt called to ministry. She did her training in Ireland and India. One day she approached her superiors and said, “I have three pennies and a dream from God to build an orphanage.” Her superiors said, “You can’t build an orphanage with three pennies. With three pennies you can’t do anything.” Agnes smiled and said, “I know. But with God and three pennies I can do anything.” For fifty years, Agnes worked among the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta, India. In 1979, Agnes, known to the rest of the world as Mother Teresa, won the Nobel Peace Prize.

How does such a diminutive woman become one of the most recognizable and most revered women in the world? How does a woman with three pennies end up inspiring people to give billions of dollars to charity?

Never underestimate someone with a God-given dream!

Pastor Steve

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.”

“Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.”

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

“I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.

“I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?”

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”

Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa)
