            If you’re a Pastor, when you hear the word, “negotiation”, the first thought that comes to your mind is dealing with your church board. That’s where probably 80% of your negotiating efforts are applied. Other negotiating with the media for advertising space, fair and unbiased event coverage. Negotiating with landlords for optimum...

   You have a specific mission, a task from God. God has a plan for you. A plan that’ll affect your life as well as the lives of those you touch. You’re sent from God.

            Sometimes it’s easy to feel weak and powerless. You’re so aware of your inadequacies and shortcomings and most of the Christians you know might not be that strong either but, that doesn’t change the fact that if you have the Spirit of the Lord in your life, you are full of power. Listen to what the prophet Micah said. He was living in...

Your friends notice that you’re different and they ask you what’s happened. They say something like this: “Hey! What’s happened to YOU?! Your attitude, your face, your smile. What’s HAPPENED to you?! They may...

He was facing up to 50 years in Federal Prison if he was convicted. There was a long list of things he had dome that were illegal and corrupt – and on TV they talked...

            I think a lot about the importance of caring. It’s what brings the spark in my life. See, it takes guts to care. It takes boldness. Caring is dangerous. It can leave you opened to hurt and to looking like a fool, and, because we’ve been hurt so much, many of us are afraid to care. But, I feel that to be alive, truly alive, you have to...

            I had been driving for several hours, mile after mile of late night interstate travel. Each mile looked like the mile before it. I was tired and bored and I remember I had been eating snack food for the last hour or two. My belly was full, the heater was on and I was comfortable. Next thing you know, I was jarred from out of my sleep...
