I’ve been in the Christian church for many years and have heard many sermons about kingdom advancement (including those that I have given!) that are usually attached to an encouragement for church members to consider doing something big and radical. I do agree that there are people who are called to do things that are […]
I just heard of two friends who lost love ones recently. Bad news like these can send someone feeling confused or even numb. I can’t imagine what you are going through right now — trials, suffering, heartache, pain. But I can tell you that whatever it is, it’s not too big for God. His grace […]
When I first learned about the Bible, I thought it was written to give us rules. In short, I thought the Bible is a rulebook. Some people think that the word BIBLE means Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. But as I get to understand what the Bible is really about, it occurs to me that […]
My wife and I are going on a few days of vacation. But I won’t say where (smile). We both are looking forward to it because we will celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary.
