The secret to growing a church

Now that I have your attention, let me confess: it is no secret. In fact, it’s been lying in plain sight for two thousand years! History shows that whenever men and women, boys and girls actually put it to use, churches were filled and the kingdom of God grew by leaps and bounds!

Knowing the truth

As a child I was always fond of vintage things, such as clothing and furniture. It seemed the older the better. Many would say that I was an old soul from birth because of this fascination at such an early age.

Last week I attended a workshop about leading in anxious times. As I sat and listened, and I was filled with wonder on God’s timing. These are anxious times.

True faith will transform you

For most of this season it was looking like the winter of 2014-2015 was going to be an uneventful one, as far a snow goes. But all of that has changed in the last couple of weeks! All winter we have had plenty of cold weather.

Avoiding ‘Misteaks’

As a teenager I went through the stage of hanging signs all over my bedroom. I had the typical assortment of traffic signs (I still can’t believe my mother really believed they came from the junkyard), posters, pin-up girls, and funny signs that said things like “Think” and “Plan Ahead,” with letters trailing off the edge of the sign because the sign-maker hadn’t planned ahead. My favorite was the one read, “Avoid Misteaks.” That one just tickled my funny bone.

I have a dream too

As we celebrate Black History Month, I can’t help but reflect upon the vision of one of the greatest legends in American history, Dr. Martin Luther King. In his “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. King shares a powerful dream of a country that would demonstrate love, acceptance and unity.

Encourage one another

God always works in community. He began with one woman and one man, and through them created a family. Later, when he wanted to form a people of his own through whom to reveal his heart and bless the world, he once again began with one woman and one man. He promised that their descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Again, he created a family through them. Out of this family of Sarah and Abraham, God created his chosen people Israel.
