No Room – One Room – Many Rooms

Well, here we are, about to celebrate another Christmas!  I have such fond memories of Christmases past.  My parents were not believers.  I became a Christian a few months before the Christmas of my senior year in high school.  Rather timidly I asked my dad if he minded if I read the Christmas story from the Bible before we opened our gifts.  I think totally stunned, he said sure!  That began a tradition to this day in my household.  These are my thoughts this Christmas season. … [Read more...]

The Disciplines of Life

September 7, 2013 Greetings to my fellow brother servants in Christ: Several years ago an evangelist friend called from the Detroit area to see if he could come over to Grand Rapids, have lunch, and pray specifically for me regarding my ministry. Rudy had been a good friend over the years but I never felt that we had been that close. I agreed to meet him at a favorite restaurant where we had sweet fellowship, and yes, before he left, he prayed for me, and oh, how he prayed. I was in tears. And I … [Read more...]

The Class Room of Life Is A Learning Lab For Leading!

“…for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, to be content.”  Philippians 4:11 “It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes.”  Psalm 119:71 “Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths….teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day.”  Psalm 25:4-5 I am writing to leaders.  I don’t know about you but I never sought or chose to be a leader.  It was not on my “bucket list” of things to do as a child, as a youth, or even when I … [Read more...]
