Do You Have a Soul?

You've probably heard it said of someone acting like a Grinch or Scrooge that they don't have a soul. There are few harsher criticisms. To not have a soul is to be something less than human. It used to be much more common for persons to be referred to as souls, like in tragic accidents where the death toll would…...

Church is Back, But Where Are The People?

I've heard it multiple times now, "You know, once you start streaming worship services it just makes it easier to keep streaming them." I get it. It's far easier to do worship in your pajamas on a Sunday morning. It can be a massive job some Sundays to get all six people from our home to church. But let's not…...

Don’t Just Respond to Questions, Inspire Them

In the New Testament, Peter tells us to always be ready to answer questions. Paul, on the other hand, encourages us to inspire questions by our well worded responses.
