Family Is A Scary Thing

Everyone belongs to a family. People from all walks of life have unique perceptions of what the nature and definition of family is. I think one apt common denominator in the world's view of family is that it is quite a precarious relational structure.

The Holland’s

I was 17 years old and a brand new Christian when I met missionary couple, Jason and Anna Holland. They just so happened to be leading a mission trip for the local church that I was attending and I felt the Lord was leading me to participate in that trip.  It wasn't long before they… Continue reading The Holland’s

The Emptiness of Exploitation

Recently, I shared with my Facebook friends, a poem by Poet Robert Raines that I heard quoted in a sermon. As I thought about the poem, I realized in startling detail the inner workings of the spirit of pride. Pride dehumanizes and warps our minds into contemptuous vessels. We become narcissistic, callous, and willing to voraciously attack with intent to destroy, whatsoever fails to satisfy our personal… Continue reading The Emptiness of Exploitation
