A Season of Transition

It occurs to me that many people today are in the midst of a transition of one kind or another. Children¬†may be changing to a new grade in school or changing schools entirely. Adults may be transitioning from one economic status to another, a job status to another, or moving from one city to another. […]

Do You Have A Heart Of Humility?

I was recently reflecting on the life of David. When we are first introduced to the David in the Bible he is seen as a young boy working in his father’s field doing the lowest of jobs; tending the sheep. Some people might have the opinion that David was happy to be out in the […]

Forgiveness is Essential for the Church

In a day and age when so many people are questioning everything, now is a time for the Church to show love in a different way. If you haven’t noticed, the last couple of days have been inundated by the reports of distrust in the government to keep a lid on information and media to […]

The Next Christians [Review]

Do you wonder about the next generation of Christians? I know I have to admit that I do. It’s been something that has been on my mind ever since I was young. I’ve always been someone who ponders about what the next generation will bring. In my most recent readings, I have been very encouraged […]

Remembering on This Memorial Day

One of the toughest things about Memorial Day for many people is in remembering the family and friends of those who died in combat fighting for our freedoms. Yet, for as much as they are deserving of our remembrance, there are many who go virtually unnoticed. It’s the ones who return back from war and […]

To Be or Not To Be Called Christian

You may find this hard to believe but many Christians are struggling with the word “Christian.” They find it hard to call themselves a Christian and it’s quite understandable in light of what I’ve read and have personally experienced as a fellow believer and follower of Christ. Personally, I believe that it is not so […]

This past week I had the opportunity to read unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity‚Ķand Why It Matters by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons. For those who are unfamiliar with David Kinnaman, he is one of the key people behind the numbers that come from Barna Group, a organization dedicated to presenting […]

A Change Coming To The American Church

I don’t know about you but my recent thoughts have been on the American Church. It’s not just because of my recent readings of David T. Olson’s book The American Church in Crisis, although it has helped to bring some clarity and even added to my understanding of the issues facing it. Nor is it […]

The American Church in Crisis

I recently had the privilege to read David T. Olson’s book The American Church in Crisis as part of my ministerial studies in pursuit of my Master’s of Divinity. As part of my class’s study of the state of the American Church, I found it quite revealing in that it really fit well into some […]

Why We Want You To Be Rich: Two Men, One Message [Review]

It’s an amazing thing to recall that just slightly more than a decade ago I was deeply engrossed in all things Rich Dad and remembering that this collaborative book by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump was being introduced. They were two men that I admired for their business savvy and perspectives. I happen to love […]
