There are certain words in Christianity that make us cringe. Words and phrases like “sacrifice” or “love your enemies” are things that we don’t really like to talk about. The word “forgiveness” is also one of these words. But just because we don’t like to talk about them doesn’t mean they are not important. Usually […]Read More Why Forgive?
This past week my church hosted our annual Turning Point Conference, which is why you haven’t seen much action from me on the blog. It has been a very busy but fulfilling past 2 weeks. During the conference our music team sang a new song from Charity Gayle entitled In Jesus Name which is our […]Read More Song of the Week
Suffering is a word that we would like to avoid at all costs. No one likes to suffer, because it’s uncomfortable. We would all like to live quiet, peaceful lives for the rest of our existence, and never have to worry about anything. Unfortunately life is not like that. If you are breathing you will […]Read More The Blessing of Suffering
It’s so hard to find faithful people these days. Whether it’s in our relationship with God or our relationship with people, so few people want to remain faithful. It is so much easier to quit.

They can range anywhere from pop, hip hop, worship, rap or singer/songwriter (all faith based lyrics, of course). Fight for Me by GAWVI featuring one of […]Read More Song of the Week
I read an article a few days ago that featured Michael Jordan. He admitted that he has felt an emptiness since he left basketball. This happens a lot with entertainers and athletes. They become so accustomed to the spotlight that they can’t handle when it’s not there anymore. Their life seems to no longer have […]Read More An Empty Feeling
Over the last few decades there has been a rise of people around the world that call themselves spiritual but not religious. What does it mean to be ‘spiritual’ but not ‘religious’? According to Wikipedia it is “a popular phrase and initialism used to self-identify a life stance of spirituality that takes issue with organised […]Read More Spiritual But Not Religious
Faith is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the entire Bible. If you ask ten different people you might get ten different answers. But Hebrews 11:1 tells us exactly what faith is. It is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The word “substance” in the Greek refers to […]Read More Where Is Your Faith?
