Life at Trinity: One Year Later

"Suffering is an indispensable part of church planting," Barry King said in the first session of his 12 Questions About Church Planting online course. That statement probably stuck with me more than any other thing he said that day. This is probably because I am part of a church plant (read initial post about my... Continue Reading →

Satan is Subtle and Modest

Many of Satan's suggestions would sound egregious to the Christian who is consciously seeking to obey God's will. So he comes subtly. Never asking for too much at one time. He does this so well that many fall for his wiles, before ever realizing how far they have gone. In the Puritan Classic, The Christian... Continue Reading →

Battling Discouragement

In seasons of much blessings and strength, my friend would often say, "The Christian life is sweet!" Those are the seasons when things don't seem so bad.

Today, our leaders pass out when asked to answer for their unscrupulous activities. They throw bants at each other on national television, boasting about the extent of their power, while their subjects painfully watch their ostentatious displays on empty stomachs. Tens (or maybe even hundreds) lose their lives daily to clashes with ethnic and religious... Continue Reading →
