     As a pastor, I can honestly say at times that I hear it all—perhaps all pastors do. We hear folks tell us they are coming to church, yet never show up. I remember a time in my younger ministry days when I led a man to the Lord on a Friday night, who had sincerely...

     When Thanksgiving rolls around are you one of those that begin to look forward to the Christmas season, or are you one of whose who say, “Oh my, here we go again?” As for me, my answer goes both ways. I say this because I do look forward to enjoying the Thanksgivi...

     Have you ever felt that there were those who knew how to do your job better than you?  Or better yet, has anyone ever tried to give you advice about your job? Even if it is one that you have been doing for years and yet they do not have one minute of experience do...
