We live in a world of a million shades of grey.
The relativism of our society makes thinking, speaking, and writing bland.

I went to the Obamacare website and learned that I cannot afford health care. The monthly premium was 908 a month with 7350 deductible. I only make 683 a month from my social security retirement. Even if I could magically afford that, then I would pay 20 for my Rx that costs 25. I could save 5 a month by paying 908.
I learned that the State of…Continue

As we develop media strategies to connect with people and help them to walk through a discipleship process, I think of the person's own story. Mehmet searches for something new after he's experienced a disruption of normal life or beliefs. A disruption will make Mehmet open to asking questions and re-forming how he views himself and God.
In our own life, or in someone else's, this is a…Continue
