Why All the Waiting

Do remember when you were young, so often being full of anticipation, yet having to wait.  You were waiting for Christmas, waiting for your birthday, waiting to be old enough to stay up past 9pm, waiting for school to get out, waiting for you drivers permit, waiting for graduation, waiting, waiting, waiting.  Do you remember your parents saying, "Wait till you get older, then you will..?"…

All Kinds of Prayer

Do you think of yourself as a spiritual person?  Most people do not.  They honestly feel spiritually disqualified by their lack of prayer.  Some people try to suppress these feelings of spiritual lack by rationalizing.  They say, "I don't need to spend specific time praying, I pray along the way - throughout my day."  This may be true, and Scripture does teach us to "pray continually."

What Are You Becoming?

When children are young, we ask them what they want to be when they grow up.  When leaders cast vision for their organization, they describe what they want they want to become.  Life is very much about "becoming," and making the needed adjustments along the way.

Call 911 to report suspicious…
