I have not had the opportunity to write for many weeks. The last few months have been a whirlwind of travel and holidays. I’m also working on a Ph.D. which significantly limits my writing time outside of assignments and dissertation preparation. Today I want to write about my love for our fellowship. Fellowship is aContinue reading “Thank You, AG”

What a joy it is to celebrate the birth of our Savior. His birth was like none other in history. This divine birth was marked by many miracles prophesied of old. One of the most intriguing and questioned miracles is the Star of Bethlehem. It is one of my favorite things to study, and IContinue reading “The Star”
The Greatets Day in All the Year
My favorite version of the Christmas Carol, excluding the Muppets, starred Albert Finny in the 1970 musical version titled Scrooge. In this beautiful and energetic rendition, Mr. and Mrs. Fezzywig sing the song “December the 25th”. This song declares it to be the greatest day in all the year…sung in your best British accent. IContinue reading “The Greatets Day in All the Year”
Who Were the Wise Men?
I love Christmas and have made it a topic of study for many years. As a result, I have some opinions about common questions. Over the next few weeks, I will do just that, give my opinion. I say that because none of us can definitively prove things where the Scripture is silent. As ourContinue reading “Who Were the Wise Men?”
The Weird and Spooky
Because of the season of life I currently find myself in, I have not blogged as often as I would like. It has given me time to think and process these very detailed thoughts. Indeed, in the length of this blog, I will only be able to scratch the surface on this topic. As weContinue reading “The Weird and Spooky”
Do Denominations Divide Us?
This is a comment I hear often; “Denominations prove there is disunity in the body of Christ.” I take issue with this premise. Why are denominations often vilified for what they are not and never celebrated for what they are. In this blog, I want to explain why I believe denominations bring unity to theContinue reading “Do Denominations Divide Us?”
The Land of Could Have Been
“It could have been” are perhaps the four saddest words in the English lexicon. The older I get, the more I see potential wasted and moments not seized. Speaking directly to my fellow Pastors, we live at the crossroads of “may be” and “could have been.” It is a life a death struggle that weContinue reading “The Land of Could Have Been”
Three Truths of the Kingdom
What has caught your attention most over the past year? We have lived through a tumultuous election cycle, a worldwide pandemic, earthquakes, a crisis in Afghanistan, wars, and rumors of wars. You see where I am going. Amid these crises, many believers have their focus in the wrong place. I understand the need to defendContinue reading “Three Truths of the Kingdom”
Who Are You Waiting For?
I was trolling Facebook the other night. Don’t judge me. You do it too. While on there, I saw a meme that dealt with waiting. It really made me think. Waiting is a part of the Christian faith. We can point to many characters in Scripture that waited. Abraham and Sarah waited for the promisedContinue reading “Who Are You Waiting For?”
Too Valuable Not to Be Used
A few weeks ago, I preached on “too valuable not to be used.” I had a second message prepared but have not been able to preach it. Today, I am putting it into a blog format. God’s Kingdom increase is dependent on our willingness to provide additional time towards this cause. We do not knowContinue reading “Too Valuable Not to Be Used”
