“Yes, I’ll have a youth ministry, with fries on the side.”

Jesus Himself went to where the sinners were. He said the well and healthy don’t need a doctor, the sick do. (Mark 2:17). We know that He associated with the least of these because if He was only hanging out in the synagogue, the Pharisees would not have criticized Him.  One example is found in […]

Incompetence Strikes Again

In college, I thought time management was my problem.  I had much to do and not enough time to do it.  I was convinced that if I could somehow manage my time more effectively, I would solve all of my problems.  Unfortunately, I didn’t learn that until later that my problem was not time management.

Strenght from Christ

Two weeks ago, I went on a CIY (Christ In Youth) MOVE trip with our church’s youth group.  On the last day, we did an encouragement circle.
