No One Should Feel Alone

Testing the Wind of the Spirit

The List

Reconciling Our Way Forward

In our personal relationships, our families, and our nation, the only way forward when sin is present is to walk the path of reconciliation. Some think the way forward is finding guilt and bringing punishment. That can be a painful part of the process, but it is only...

Discerning Prophetic Outcomes

The expression “the elephant in the room” describes a topic, question, or controversial issue people choose to ignore. No one wants to mention or discuss what is obvious, something that needs to be asked and answered. Engaging the subject can be challenging and...
