Church, where are you?

Growing up in church has given me a unique perspective on walking the Christian walk. I've had opportunities to share the room with gifted men and women of God. Generally, as pastors and parishioners, we're able to quote scripture dealing with the "fruits of the spirit" - love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, faith, etc. However, we all know that quoting scripture and actually practicing what you preach are two separate things.

Balance life's ups and downs

Another day up, another day down. Let's look at life one day at a time. Yes, we all have a calendar full of appointments and events. But we must slow down and thank God for letting us live one day at a time. We won't live forever, so it's important to be grateful for every hour and every day.

Stone movers wanted by God

"Jesus said, 'Take ye away the stone.' Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, 'Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days.'
