The Grace of God

On 11/7 T.S. wrote: Grace, she became my mother. Jimmy Needham’s song, “Moving to Zion” has a line that resonates within me. “Grace, she became my mother.” Grace is my mother. And my grandmother. My mom’s name is Grace Lyn. My grandmother’s name is Grace. If I have a girl, I want Grace to be a part of her ... Grace

Transforming Church in Rural America

Transforming Church in Rural America

On 10/11 T.S. wrote: I’m not involved in a rural church in America, so my reading Shannon O’Dell’s book, “Transforming Church in Rural America” may seems a little strange. But, many of O’Dell’s themes and messages can be applied overseas as well as to rural churches in America. Ministry needs to have calling, ... Transforming church

Uncle Sam's Plantation

On 9/14 T.S. wrote: It’s modern-day slavery. It’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin on Uncle Sam’s Plantation.

Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life

On 9/10 T.S. wrote: The world would be different if Christians stood up and did something about it. I'm not talking about the amorphous body that we like to refer to when talking about the need for social action and justice. I am talking about you. You are the body of Christ. I think many times we tend to forget ourselves ... Outlive Your Live

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect

On 9/7 T.S. wrote: I heard about the butterfly effect long before reading Andy Andrews' brief book, “The Butterfly Effect,” but reading it enforced and expanded my affinity for this theory.

Cast of Characters

On 8/11 T.S. wrote: It’s really nice to be reminded that people in the Bible are real people too. I mean, I know this, but many times I put Bible characters on pedestals and am prone to miss the obvious connections they with my 21-century life. Max Lucado’s book, “A Cast of Characters: Common People in the Hands of ... Cast of Characters

Searching for God Knows What

On 6/26 T.S. wrote: Humanity is searching for the relationship it lost in the Garden of Eden. Today, I read Donald's Miller's book, "Searching for God Knows What."

The Voice New Testament

The Voice New Testament

On 5/2 T.S. wrote: I’ve always enjoyed reading different versions of the Bible. It gives you a fresh perspective. I think it causes different passages of Scriptures to stand out. The Bible verses I’ve read so many times have new meaning in different translations. I am currently reading “The Voice New ... The Voice
