It’s okay to be honest about how you feel during the holidays. Just ask Mr. Rogers…and Jesus.
I think this Christmas rally could have used a bit more “Christ”.
“When jury members conclude that a witness can be trusted, they must come to grips with what the witness has to say and use this testimony as the foundation for future decisions they may make about the truth of the case. If the gospel writers are found to be reliable, we can accept their statements […]
“One of the gifts God has given us through social media is to rob us of the assumption that the human race is on the best trajectory possible.” ~ Mike Erre
Leave me out of the limelight…and just let my life speak.
“You can’t take an ungodly approach to a Godly solution and expect God to be pleased.” ~ Marvin McMickle
A lesson learned on my “not-so” day off…
“The exclusive claim of the gospel – that Jesus is the only way – is often misconstrued. It’s mistakenly viewed as God favoring the Christian club over all the other religious clubs.

And that is why so many are fatally deceived…for there are multitudes who wish to escape the lake of fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and […]
“I think what we reinforce over and over again in Christian circles is that your value is based on how useful you are. How much are you changing the world for God? How effective are you on the mission field? How well are you fulfilling your destiny? We marinate in that thinking, and it transforms […]
“You can’t mass produce transformation. It’s the work of the Holy Spirit by God’s grace. But so many times, we simply try to put as many people into a room as possible and think that information alone is going to be transformational. It just doesn’t work that way, especially in a generation that is being shaped […]
“One of the ways you can tell that your kids are just borrowing your faith is if they never ask questions.” ~ Natasha Crain
