Think and Grow Wealthy (in what matters most)

September 28, 2010

Not original but great thoughts sent to me by a friend on Facebook… “The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more but enjoy less We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, […]

Mail Character

September 27, 2010

About two weeks I noticed our mail box was missing off its post. I walked across the road when I noticed the mail box smashed and on the ground. Obviously the victim of a juvenile prank. I must confess my first thoughts of what I would do if got my hands on the kid(s) who […]

Younger, Leaner, and Meaner

September 22, 2010

Here’s a retro step back in time. I became a Senior Pastor at the age of 26. It was an amazing experience to be allowed to serve as a spiritual mentor, influence, and shepherd in peoples’ lives. Everyday I woke up excited about the fact I was able to work in the highest calling on […]

Which Church?

September 5, 2010

Okay, do you go to church on vacation? If so … what kind of church do you attend? Do you stick with what you are OR do use the opportunity to see what other’s do? For example… if you’re a Baptist do you check the big nondenominational church in that area to see why they […]

REST FROM YOUR LABOR WEEKEND

September 4, 2010

It’s a holiday weekend that celebrates a true rest from your labor. So what are you doing? Finally getting some of those odd jobs around the house caught up? Maybe you’re involved in a project or participating in a weekend event or competition. Going on a mini vacation? Did you pack … do extra laundry […]
