Moving Through Sin

We all sin. Real, honest, hard-core moral rebellion. From addictions to pornography; from an uncontrolled temper, a critical spirit and uncontrolled tongue to greed and ambition; from cut-loose pride to adulterous thoughts and even actions. We are sinners. Present tense. Today. Multiple times.

Divorce and Domestic Violence

A survey by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) found that 1 out of every 4 women surveyed said they were violently attacked by their husbands or boyfriends. Where is the church when it comes to the physical abuse of women? Where are its leaders?

It’s one of the most pressing questions pastors and church leaders ask themselves: “Why aren’t we growing?” Churches are living things. Living things grow. If you’re not growing – even if just in compensation to what you’ve lost through transition – something is wrong.
