  • Sin, Cancer... Are they similiar?

    How do you feel about cancer? Do I have your attention? Seriously. What is your response to cancer? Do you have any sympathy for cancer? Would you ignore cancer in your body? Would you attempt to live with cancer? I imagine you are now yelling at your paper, “No!” Of course not! What is our response to cancer? Get rid of it! All of it! Aggressively! Now.

  • Pastor Appreciation Month

    This month is set aside in the Christian world as Pastor Appreciation Month. From my experience as a pastor, I want to encourage you to consider what most pastors desire when it comes to the people of the church.  Take the opportunity this month to show your appreciation to your pastor, but think through what he desires. From my experience, pastors certainly enjoy gifts, money, cards etc…. but pastors that I know desire something a little less obvious.  There are four things you can do to show appreciation to your pastor.

  • When God’s will, our will and death collide

    I believe that God’s will is always being done  and that it is always the best way but that we as humans are constantly distorting that will just by being human really. You see, this “life” is a mixture of God’s will always at work in the world and our free wills always moving this world in all kinds of ways sometimes closer to God’s will and sometimes not.

    When we are moving towards God’s will, our spirit is alive and our hearts are steady but when we move away from it, we are wounded and experience more suffering and restlessness.

  • The perfect sermon

     If you are like me you have listened to many sermons. Some good and some not so good. (I have preached both as well.) There have been times that I have walked away from hearing a sermon and been overcome with the glory of God. Have you ever wondered what makes a good sermon?  What makes us see God and his glory and power?
