Filling the Empty Cup

Amazon.com Widgets Change never happens in the absence of conflict, and ministry never occurs in a vacuum.  I recall frequently coming home late from various ministries and being tired and worn out.  Some people are under the impression that if you go out to serve people by talking about God and teaching doctrines, you should …

Youth are Still Kids, Not Autonomous Adults!

I do a lot of work in the tech field.  I can fix computers, build home networks, write webpages, and do graphic design.  My current day job consists of many of these elements.  I am also expanding my skills (a concept that I think everyone should do), so I was doing a few internet searches …

Educational Absurdity!!

OK, so I have to rant.  This is nothing to do with Christianity, but I have no other forum to mention this issue.  It is relevant to my other major interest: education!  I have taught higher education for three years and now, in addition to running my business, I tutor online.  In my bout with …

The Tears of God

I have asked the question of many people: Which ministry is harder, Children’s or Addiction Recovery?  Usually I hear back that addition recovery is harder for various reasons.  These reasons are all valid: people are set in the ways, they are not always looking for help, the power of addiction, etc.  I always tend to …

Sinners and Saints

As I was examining some news stories the other day, I came upon a quote by Warren Buffett that I considered important enough to examine in detail. He started, “Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.” Just consider: if you find a person living out the graceful life of Jesus Christ, …
