Pastors – I Am Intentional

I am very intentional when it comes to soul winning. If you were to look in the “notes” section of my Blackberry you would see a number of lists. I have a list of “contacts”, a “hit” list and a “hot” list. As well, there is a “new” list. I work all four lists almost […]

Up, Up, and Away – Bible Blog #5

In our daily (except Sundays) Bible Study Blog, currently covering the Book of Acts, we are talking today about THE ASCENSION. Although this is usually not celebrated by Born Again Churches and is celebrated by the Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Anglo-Catholic (Anglican) Churches – it is a valid part of the ministry and life of […]

Do I Hear My Theme Song?

Like Willie Nelson – on the road again! A THOUGHT: I am often approached by young men and women some of whom have a call on their lives and some don’t. But they are all bent out of shape about being in ministry. I am sure part of what they see or imagine is standing […]

Well, the evolutionists would want you to believe we humans are working our way up the food chain and getting better all the time. You know, we started as goo crawling out of the ocean and got to you by way of the zoo – with monkeys being our nearest relatives that did not quite […]

California has done it!

Well, California is now officically marrying homosexual couples. The law, passed a number of weeks ago, went public yesterday and the “weddings” began. Here in Canada where I live one national network (CTV) on their main late evening newscast carried an item on the rush to have “marriages” legalized in that state. It is interesting […]

Happy Father’s Day?

I was driving home last night (almost a 3 hour drive – 175 miles one way) and was listening to talk radio from the U.S.A. The Bill Cunningham Show – conservative talk radio. We don’t get it here on Canadian stations but late at night the program comes in on a number of American radio […]
