You who is full of lovingkindness involves us in Your plans.
How can I align my mind and heart with You in the mysteries of prayer?

Every role has downsides. I have to manage a lot of detail. I manage my own schedule, book my own flights, reconcile the books at the end of each month and write and edit most of the communications.…

Six of us sat in the Asian-accented hotel room this past Saturday night from 9 PM till midnight. We had just participated in six days of strategic gatherings to partner, learn and develop new ways to share Christ to the ends of the earth.

In spite of "Noah" not being an exact biblical representation, here are nine reasons as to why I think it is worth…Continue
Apparently several million others who purchased $26.5 million worth of tickets on opening weekend thought the same.
A good portion of the movie was from the television series that aired last year. I don't know how much of this material was new, but it seemed like there was fresh content.…
