I was preparing to post this week but got distracted, a bit of undiagnosed ADD probably, lol. Seriously though, I was going to post something about my old youth group being at camp this week and blah,blah, blah, blah, but then at my Life Group last night we talked about letting closed doors alone … More Conversations With Peter: The Dynamic Duo and a Sorcerer?
This was taken from an advice column from http://www.relevantmagazine.com. I’m a little torn about this article and feel it’s a bit of a simplistic answer. I too believe that GOD us calls to reconciliation and restoration, but what happens when the attempt is made and rejected, or the perception is that you’re just … More Should I Rectify Past Mistakes or Just Move On?
Acts 5:1-11 has always been a challenge for me for some reason. It seems pretty straight forward to me, you sell something, you give money to the church, but then he gets punished. That’s how I always read it when I was younger. Face value reading without looking deeper at the context and even … More Conversations with Peter: Liars die and fearless boldness in the face of bullying
I don’t remember the first time I heard about “Cheap Grace”, but I know when I realized what it was talking about it resonated with me because I was a living example. Many of us are brought to salvation with the belief that everything will be ok if we just say a prayer and if … More “Cheap Grace” Isn’t Grace
How long does one have to wait for answered prayer? A day? A week? 6 months? A year? Quite a few years? That’s a very good question that men and women have been asking since creation. Abraham and Sarah waited literally a lifetime for a child. Israel waited 4 generations … More Conversations with Peter: Lame Faith
Does God’s plan and timing happen when we expect it to or does it unfold in a manner and way that causes anxiety, impatience, curiosity, wonder, and finally amazement? A lot of times we pray and set up a timetable for GOD to answer our prayer (because we all know GOD needs to have … More Conversations with Peter: Catching fire and Taking off
I’ve been wrestling with God lately. This is a good article. Hope you enjoy it.
I’m going to put the next Conversation with Peter on pause for this week….or maybe today. This week it’s about our pasts, present and future. The embedded clip is from Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode 1. I’m a bit of a sci fi geek and this has been one of my favorite … More You Exist here……Where do you exist?
I’ve always been suspicious of the mega church “models” that stressed style and “coolness” over authentic worship and strong Biblical teaching. Millenials may come across as ADD and maybe even shallow, but in the end they really just want something authentic and meaningful to believe in. This is a a pretty good article. We … More Want Millenials back in the Pews? Stop trying to make it ‘cool’
This is another really good article. After reading through it, I’ve realized that I’m healing from a “deep cut”. Actually, it was a “deep cut” to an area that already had a “cut” that was probably infected, which just made the “deep cut” worse. That probably didn’t make sense to a lot of … More Dealing with Dirt and Hurt: When to Call in the Calvery (repost from Crosswalk.com)
