  • Think you can't fight evil in world? Think again!

    On a variety of occasions,  people have asked me how I develop the ideas for sermons.
    My normal method involves plans to cover topics of Christian growth and development. These topics include doctrine, ministry and character development. The idea behind this is to keep things from getting stuck in any one place for too long.

  • Fear not! God says not to be anxious about anything

     “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
    (Joshua 1:9)

  • Listen to Christ, and also listen to each other

    Good listening is an art.  Unfortunately, there are not a lot of good listeners today.
    And if you don’t think so, ask yourself how many times you say something and have to repeat it.  You say something,  and the response is “Hmmm?” or “What did you say?”
    It’s frustrating when people don’t listen.  Sometimes it’s easier not to talk than to have to repeat things because people won’t listen.
