Critical Lessons Regarding Criticism

Over the years of my ministry I’ve put up with, and sometimes been seriously injured by, a fair (although at times I thought “unfair”) share of criticism from others … sometimes from those whom I loved dearly.  My attitude, dress, beard, leadership style, mode of transportation, Sunday afternoon activities, and even my height have been subjects of criticism.  […]

S’more S’mores Please

I just ate a bag of S’Mores.  It’s a Fit & Active diet snack (just 90 calories) made for guys that want to change their body profile so that it casts less of a shadow.  Have you ever made “real s’mores” by the campfire?  Hot toasted golden brown and gooey marshmallows pressed between two graham […]

Developing Next Generation Leaders

I read this today and thought it particularly relevant to addressing the struggle we have in identifying and grooming leadership for the local church.  I have witnessed many of the things that the author describes.  Churches that will survive more than a generation and continue having a vital impact on their community MUST learn to […]

By Guest Blogger: Les Lofquist – Executive Director IFCA International I just returned from Guyana, South America where it was at least 100 degrees every day (often 110) and 95% humidity. Hindus, Muslims, mosquitoes, taking cold showers with frogs and lizards clinging to the shower walls, cows walking the streets, and cars driving on the left […]

Low View of God Requires a Low View of Scripture

This past Sunday I had the privilege of sitting in a worship service under the ministry of the Word (rather than being the one doing the ministry). The message was from 1 John 2 and, in exhorting us in regard to the test of our relationship with God, the speaker urged upon us the need […]

Biblical Christianity Makes Poor Opiate for Masses

by Guest Blogger, Alexandra Armstrong  I can’t help but chuckle to myself when, as recently, I hear folks haul out Karl Marx’s mid-19th century quote: “Religion is the opiate of the masses.” It’s used to make the point that religion provides a cheap means for people to sedate themselves from the realities of this cruel […]

A Garage Sale Woman

Well, the garage sale is over and I was pleased to net 293.00.  I also still have an inflatable whale in case anyone is interested.  It’s priced at .25 One of my customers inspired a song that I’d like to share with you.  It has no tune yet … perhaps there is someone out there […]
