ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL SERIES THIS WEEK (October 15th) The Book of Proverbs provides one of the best reads in the universe on how to "read people". The Scriptures teach that we should obtain DISCRETION! We are looking at the two types of "wise"
THE WORLD WOULD BE MUCH BETTER OFF IF... ...we could learn to stay in our lane! When I drive from one place to another, I need to give my overwhelming attention to the lane I'm in! What is the automobile doing in front of me? Is it braking? Is it accelerating? Is it sliding? Is it stopped? If I don't know what is happening right in front of me, then I am likely to be in an accident pretty soon. True, we need to be aware of the traffic in other lanes, the signs and people on the … [Read more...]
What the Holy Land trip did for my Ministry... Wow! Did the Lord use my trip to Israel to work in my heart in ways I had not expected!

Going to Church...out of town! The value of going to Church when you are on vacation. Recently, I took my family on a long planned for and anticipated vacation. As a born-again, Bible believing family, we have decided, and therefore, go to church on the LORD's DAY.
