Resurgence

06/16/2010

I have so far refrained from delving into denominational discussions on this blog. However, I am sitting in my hotel room in Orlando, FL, after a LONG day at the Southern Baptist Convention. I was not raised a Southern Baptist,…



Funeral Sermon

06/01/2010

First sermons aren’t usually known for their profundity (mine certainly was not). They are usually fairly short, despite the uncomfortable pauses and nervous stuttering. All Luke tells us about Paul’s first sermon is that “he preached Christ…that he is the…



Leftover Christians

05/24/2010

a man like Elijah

02/17/2010

I just recently finished a book by Michael Catt, who is the pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA. The book is The Power of Persistance, and deals with the matter of prayer. I highly recommend this book, and…



The Sick Getting Well

01/24/2010

Matthew 9:12-13 says, “But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice:…
