When We Know Better We Have to Do Better

I left off last month with the statement that when we know better we have to do better. A month ago. I’m still working on part two, but am going to press pause on that for now. Last week I deactivated my Facebook account. It finally hit me that there was a...

When Church Is Messy {Part One}

There have only been two times when God has audibly spoken to me. Well, audibly in my head. I was alone both times but am pretty sure no one would have heard Him but me anyway. Once was when He met me in our basement to tell me it was time to go back into ministry....
