Because age ain’t nothin’ but a number This content is appropriate for people of all ages. And that’s the point. The days … Read moreMeet the Perennials!
Guest Post by David Broodryk Is DMM a passing fad? originally published: Monday, 19 September 2016 read more by David at http://davidbroodryk.org Several years ago, I participated in discussions that led to renaming the term “Church Planting Movements (CPM)” to “Disciple Making Movements (DMM).” This was an attempt to more accurately define these movements around … Read moreIs Disciple-making Movement Strategy a Passing Fad?
This is via Bob Tiede email@example.com Guest Post by Chris Thyberg Peter Block in his amazing book, The Answer to How is Yes: Acting on What Matters, argues that “How?” questions, though critical, can often mask a defensive distraction that causes us to postpone – sometimes indefinitely – answering the prior and more important question: What is our Great … Read moreWhy the “How” questions needs to be altered?

But there was another huge eagle, with broad wings and thick plummage, and the vine actually bent its roots towards him and stretched its branches toward him, away from the bed where it was planted! It would have him to water it, though it was planted beside brimming streams in a rich soil to bear … Read moreEzekiel 17-18
Reading the Moffat Version of Bible is very fascinating. I am not a poetry kind of guy yet the poetry of lamentation is fascinating. I was reminded by 3:26 “It is good to wait in silence for the help of the Eternal, it is good to hear without a word the rebuke of the Eternal. … Read moreLamentations-Silence
Daniel 9:17 Act out of who you are, not out of who we are. Daniel’s plea to God! Maybe the very reason we don’t approach God with confidence. We come expecting Him to act out of who I am not who He is! My bashfulness before God may have to do more with my sense … Read moreWhat if?

It consisted of exchanging names with our kids and their significant others (started as boy friend and girl friends and now spouses). The assignment is to find a gift that represents … Read moreFound Gifts
It seems that in the vein that condoms allow for safe sex, the so called Christian world has followed suit allowing for a safe, non-transferrable Christianity. There are Christian schools, music, books, bookstores, dating sites, yellow pages, jewelry and don’t forget the clothing, not the least of which are the T-shirts. I would suspect that … Read moreCondomized Christianity
I spent my formative years in Hawaii where marijuana would find you rather than having to look for it. But there was a unique phenomena surrounding the use of marijuana. There were shops that sold the paraphernalia for consuming marijuana but not marijuana. Obviously its sale was legally controlled or rather prohibited but not the … Read moreThe Church as a Paraphernalia Shop
