Technology and the Heart

Listen to or Download this message. I had a wonderfully opportunity recently to speak to the young adult community at Hope Church. What a great community of people. In this message I unpack to paths… One is an example of utter Self Centeredness…Rebellion against God that leads to a life of futility, isolation and misguided fear. The other is a pictureRead the Rest…

Test Your Knowledge of Black History


In honor of Black History month my dear pastor friend in Chicago posted a short quiz in the church Bulletin last weekend.   I decided to post some of the questions here…  It is inspiring to learn the amazing things that Black Americans have done to make this country great. Test your knowledge of Black History in the U.S.    

There’s No Fear In Love

As I take a few moments to pause with God at the start of my day, today’s “verse of the day” at BibleGateway.com really caught me this morning. There is no fear in love.
