But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

How Do We Fix Our Evangelistic Apathy?

Written by

image In my 20 or so years of adulthood, I have spent 8 years, give or take, on Evangelism or Home Mission Committees.  In the beginning I actively sought out to be on these committees.

Why?

Because I had a passion to reach the lost with the Gospel. And I thought this was a great way to do it.

Stressed and Blessed.

Written by

Some people expressed concern over my last post.  That I was in a dark place, that I may walk away from all we’ve built in such a short time. So I thought I would write this one as a follow up.

Folks…I am just stressed.  It’s natural for start ups, and my personality...

As most of you know, I am a cancer survivor.

The scary thing is that 40 years ago, my diagnosis would have been a death sentence, as there were no treatments developed. But through research, they discovered that platinum – tho deadly poison – also cures my form of cancer.

And it is...

Sleepless Nights and My Dad

Now.

When I blog about my...

Written by

Just a quick update.

Recently I had my 6 months tests, a CT Scan, Chest Xray, and blood tests. A week or so later I had my meeting with my oncologist to go over the results.

I had scheduled work that day, which was a silly thing to do, because I never sleep well before this visit. So after a night of...

Your Personality Profile Is Tainted

Written by

Worried about Worrying about Worrying.

Written by

imageWhere is the line between sinful worry and anxiety as a metal illness?

I have often wondered that.

I read this today:

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation  and my God. Deep calls to deep at the roar...
