Dreams and Systems

In Genesis 41, we find the somewhat familiar story known as Pharaoh’s Dream. One night, while Pharaoh is sleeping he began to dream. In his dream he saw seven fat cows grazing near the Nile River and then seven ugly and gaunt cows appear from the Nile and stand next to them. The seven gaunt […]

The Power of Joy

Joy. We have probably all heard the word, but few probably know what it actually means. We sing about it in Christmas carols, and even use it as a name for our children. Yet for all of our mentions of it, it seems that we have forgotten how to properly use the word. Joy is […]

A Word For My Generation

There are few discourses in the scripture that are as powerful as Paul’s discourse on Mars’ Hill in Acts 17. Contrary to popular belief, Mars’ Hill was not simply a pagan shrine. In reality, it was a kind of court room. It’s very likely that Paul’s discourse was a defense at his trial, which makes […]
