From time to time, I will be doing a devotional VLOG on the blog called WordNSpirit. What is God up to when your circumstances don’t change when you pray? Please feel free to use the comment box below and let me know what your thoughts are!
In my previous post on “Christian Transparency & Accountability” I mentioned that “sometimes discretion is better than transparency, precisely because not many of us can be trusted with information about people.” On this post I’d like to share Tim Keller and David Powlison’s recent collaboration in order “to provide some biblical wisdom and guidelines on […]
I know this is long over due, so I quickly wanted to share with you a video of David Platt and Francis Chan’s trip to Japan. I got the privilege to sit down and eat dinner with them, along with other friends, just before Pastor Francis spoke. Also, here are my reflections from my brief […]
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints” (Psalm 116: 15) Dr. Smith went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 7th, 2014 after fighting with cancer for about a year and a half. He worked hard with Mrs. Smith and the Lord used him to make ICAN […]
