Cheerful Confidence after Christendom – Here is some encouragement for you as you adapt to a post-Christian world.

6 Costs of Real Friendships – “Do you know how your ‘friends’ are doing? How their hearts are? The spiritual condition of their soul?

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher.
