Christians are not Called to Protest

Here in the U.S. we find law after law being passed that are affronts to God’s Word. Many local communities try to curb the growth of churches through zoning laws. The news reports run rampant about Pastors who fall way short of living out their calling but they never report the positive impact many churches […]

The Anonymous Leader

Ralph Mayhew describes his latest book, The Anonymous Leader: An Unambitious Pursuit of Influence, as being, “… about fading away and becoming nothing so Jesus Christ can become everything through your life and leadership.”  I agree that this short quote describes his book well. Mayhew’s book stands out in stark contrast against all the books […]

Grace and Peace from God our Father

In 2014 I preached a two part series on the prayers of Paul. I don’t know if I preached it well but it was one of those sermons which had a major impact on my own life and how I pray. If you look at Paul’s letters, you will find that he followed closely to […]

The Messiness of Faith

We try so hard to control our daily life. We make sure everything fits neatly and safely in a box. We set goals and avoid risks to eliminate unexpected surprises.

When Prayer and Fire Mix

As you can tell from the vast majority of my blog posts I am a Pastor. That does not make my special; God has just called me to help a community walk out their faith in Jesus. I have thought for a while now I would start sharing a few of my Sunday sermons. I […]

Focus – My One Word for 2016

Last year was the first year I chose a single word to define my year. Last year’s word was “Generous.” Yes I will still be generous this year; however, for this year my word will be “Focus.” I always say that I am a slow learner but as I have crossed over into my second […]
