Around the year 586 BC, the crown jewel of the Jewish nation was ripped from their grasp as the Babylonians overtook and subsequently destroyed Jerusalem. Jeremiah, known as “The Wheeping Prophet”, not only foretold of the coming destruction, he watched it happen. A short time later, he would write what we now know as the

Some of our best moments in ministry have been involved with leading and participating in small groups. Over the years we have shared our struggles and celebrated our joys with each other, while occasionally shedding tears as we walk through this life…together. Together. It is together that we often discover the presence of God in

What do you do when everything falls apart? I often talk to people that are going through this very problem…they don’t know what to do. I also often speak with Christians that are struggling in their own walk of faith for different reasons, also needing some clue on how to move forward. As we have

No too long ago, my satellite radio was affixed to either CNN or FoxNews to catch up on the news of the day. Every time I settled into my car, I would have a chance to hear what was going on right now in the world, and I had repeated this practice for a couple

It is inevitable that you are going to face storms in your life. I face them. You face them. Every person in the Bible faced them…including Jesus. What we do in those storms will determine how we fare once they end… …because they will end. I know a lot of Christians that pray for peace

Last week, our students had a wonderful week at Centrifuge at North Greenville University and several had significant experiences with God in the process. In church circles, we often call those “Mountain-Top Experiences” because they emulate Moses’s experience with God on Mt. Sinai when he received the 10 commandments (twice). What often happens, though, happened

We are having a great week at Centrifuge and I am always excited to spend time with our students. As usual, our church has an incredible group of kids that look out for each other, help each other, and include each other. What we don’t enjoy, so much, is the encroaching rain that seems to

Confidence. We all seek it when we don’t have it. When we have it, we forget what it’s like to need it. It’s a quiet song beating in our ears and whispering, “You are not enough.” It’s lure is so great, that many latch on to the first thing that gives them the impression that
