  •   "Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness". Luke 4:1About 24 years ago, something extraordinary happened to me. Up until then I had always loved Jesus, served, given financially, etc, but something was mis[...]
  • Prayer: In 1 Thess 5: 17 we read: “Pray continually”. What, all the time? In every place? Even when we sleep?

The most demanding and challenging form for me is fly fishing - something I still feel like such a novice in. Why is it so challenging? First, you must learn to cast a line with n[...]
  • I don’t think that I would be here today and be a disciple of Jesus if it was not for one man powerfully used by God. This Sunday in church we will be viewing what possibly may be his last address.
