Holding Hands and Sticking Together

Robert Fulghum wrote some practical advice in his famous essay, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten:” “Hold hands and stick together.” That advice followed “flush.” Every married person must learn how to flush out the foul attitudes, the unforgiveness, and the hurtful words, and hold hands and stick together in covenant […]

Descending the Mountain

Mt. Everest is the highest point on earth at 29,035 feet. Amazingly, people are still trying to conquer it, as in 1300 – 1600 climbers, but also 160+ have died. However, it is more dangerous to descend than to climb Mt. Everest, with more dying on the way down than on the way up. Our […]

Our Kingdom Missions Conference last week was a huge success. Of course, the Kingdom is not confined to a conference, a period of time, or persons. Jesus taught us to pray that His “Kingdom would come and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven” in the Model Prayer. The “honorable” man, […]

The Risk of Reach

Sometimes it’s worth the risk to “rock the boat.” Survivor Eva Hart remembered the night of April 15, 1912 when the Titanic plunged 12,000 feet to the Atlantic floor after an iceberg tore a 300-foot gash in the starboard side. She said, “I heard the cries of drowning people.” She was in a lifeboat that […]
