“Good people and the obstacles to an authentic faith examined in challenging new book”
Do good people make good Christians? The answer may surprise you. In “The Glass Cage and the Rock,” North Carolina author Dana Cashwell takes a liberating but reverent approach at examining strongholds that keep our faith from being genuine. Emphasizing that we can’t change our lives without Christ,…

Been considering the concept of Jesus meeting with the believers. Jesus said that where two or three were assembled together in His name He would be there. Many have talked about how many believers it takes to be considered church. And I have seen discussions about meeting in Jesus' name and what that meant. But what about the meaning of Jesus being in the midst of the assembly?
He did not say that He would be within them but among them.
When Paul said that if an… Continue

This is another take on the the hand and glove example blog.
Does it seem like the glove has come to life?
You might have to read my blog on the glove, to understand this but let's give it a chance.
If we as Christians are to be dead to ourselves, and alive to Christ, then why are we trying to be alive when we are a shell for the hand, that is inside us? The glove moves only when the hand inside him moves. The glove only makes signals or motions when the hand signals or… Continue

Being involved with John White and the LK10 project has had me thinking alot this week about church planting. When I was a traditional church planter the thought was start with a crowd and then work with the crowd to make it a congregation and then work with the congregation to produce leaders. What tended to happen was we focused on building the crowd, gave lip service to building a congregation and then begged for leaders.
I have really been chewing on the idea of Churches… Continue

So I have been pondering a lot lately about our old church and how it operated. You see, I drive past it atleast once or twice a week and after attending there for 10 years, many memories come and go. Well one thing that stuck out to me this week was how I remember trying to have a VBS at a local park and after much deliberating about how liable we would be for this and that, the idea was politely dismissed. I think back on the way things were done and I see a repeated practice of trying to… Continue

My meditation for the day,
“Don’t come talk to me of God, come to my door with religious pamphlets, or ask me whether I’m saved. Hell holds no threat more agonizing than the harsh reality of my own life. I swear to you that the fires of hell seem more inviting than the bone-deep cold of my own life. And don’t talk to me of… Continue
