Am I Being Deceived?

This past year, I had the joy of walking with a woman coming out of the New Age movement. In fact, she had once been a New Age teacher. We started with Scriptures in our sessions and took our time before we began asking Jesus questions. Her heart now was so beautifully hungry and thirstyContinue reading “Am I Being Deceived?”

Pastor, How Do You Define Yourself?

Many years ago I connected with Ed Underwood (and I have referenced his resources before on this blog). He recently wrote this post… (which is addressed to pastors but is for ALL OF US in ministry….) Pastor, the Shocking Contrast Between Legalism and Grace. We can choose to define ourselves as pastors by what we’reContinue reading “Pastor, How Do You Define Yourself?”

How to End Things :(

I always thought you had to be FOREVER faithful to people, programs, and institutions to the very end. (One of my key values is loyalty and integrity.) Sadly, I learned the hard way some things and relationships must come to an end. Ouch. Sigh. After years of investing in some thing and someone, if thereContinue reading “How to End Things :(“

The Fastest Growing Church

This will challenge your every thought on: “WHAT and WHO is a church..?” Interestingly, I learned about this film on September 11… You will soon learn why… “The fastest growing church in the world has taken root in one of the most unexpected and radicalized nations on earth,” according to “Sheep Among Wolves,” the outstandingContinue reading “The Fastest Growing Church”

We are Tired of Listening to Men

“Mr Moody, there must be more prayer. The speaking here is excellent but there is too much of it in proportion to prayer. We do not have time to pray. We get tired when going to meetings, listening to men. We must have more time to speak to God and to listen to Him.” – AndrewContinue reading “We are Tired of Listening to Men”

Church? Spectators vs Participants

Dear Church, Are you a spectator or a participant in building God’s kingdom? Years of sitting in traditional church has not prepared us to be the church in the manner described in the New Testament. We have been taught to come. To sit. To watch and listen to what others have prepared. (Someone described itContinue reading “Church? Spectators vs Participants”

The Prayer of St Patrick

This morning on St Paddy’s day, my family and I gathered for communion and then reflected on a portion of his famously penned prayer… I arise today, through God’s strength to pilot me, God’s might to uphold me, God’s wisdom to guide me, God’s eye to look before me, God’s ear to hear me, God’s wordContinue reading “The Prayer of St Patrick”

A Culture of Honour – Men and Women

Tears of healing began to roll down my face. I didn’t know what was happening in me at the time, but I found myself in a culture of honour – observing and experiencing men honouring women and vice versa. It was so powerful JUST WITNESSING IT. I wept deeply… healing much of the diagnosed psychological, emotional,Continue reading “A Culture of Honour – Men and Women”

How do you know if you’re in a false ‘church’?

How do you know if you’re in a false ‘church’ ? Today’s lent devotional (below) was extremely timely as I walk several clients through ‘church’ abuse in multiple churches in my area. When churches practice witchcraft – control and manipulation, there is even trauma around reading God’s Word. Breaks my heart. Thankfully, Jesus loves toContinue reading “How do you know if you’re in a false ‘church’?”

What Are We Trying to Revive in the Church?

What are we trying to revive when it comes to the Church? “I was at a prayer meeting for revival in England. For three hours, people prayed for God to do something. Then suddenly, a young teenage boy stood up and gave a prophecy. I shall never forget it. In a penetrating voice, this shyContinue reading “What Are We Trying to Revive in the Church?”
