I have said through the years that my most memorable time of worship ever was the Sunday after 9/11. The crowd was larger. We sang louder. We had a greater sense of desperation. That’s the way I feel today. The crowds likely won’t be as large this Sunday, March 15, because of fears of gathering […]

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. – Luke 2:19 (NIV) Christmas is filled with wonder. I love seeing the wonder of Christmas in a child’s eyes.

I hope that you have given your offering already. If not, I hope that you will give soon through your local church. On behalf of the […]

As I introduced him, I challenged our church to erase whatever we thought we were going to give and be receptive to hearing from God. At the very […]

In short, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is the major funding source for our overseas missions effort as Southern Baptists. Lottie Moon, the missionary to China of the 1880s summed up best our reason for giving […]
Habakkuk ended his prophecy like this: Though the fig tree does not bud and there is no fruit on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, 18yet I will triumph in Yahweh; I will rejoice […]
