A Prisoner of Christ

What does it mean to be a prisoner of Christ? I shared in my last blog that my parents would take all four of us boys to our Grandparents for the summer. Two of us would stay at one set of grandparents for two weeks and two at the other for two weeks and then we'd...

It is amazing to me to experience the grace and love of the Lord. There are times in life when you go through dry spells and you think, "Where are you God?" You pray, you read the Word, you go to worship, you do all the "right" things. But there's nothing, no hope, no...

I'm on FaceBook quite a bit, because it's the thing to do, right? After all that's how you promote your church, that's how you promote yourself, that's how you connect with all your friends. You create the FB page, you get on Twitter, you have a Snapchat, you scan...
