Discernment isn’t the enemy…

In the Body of Christ, we all have different giftings and skills, and not everyone is passionate about the same ministries, or areas where we serve. And that’s a good thing. We are all different parts of the Body, and we need each other. The Bible says, “The eye cannot say to the hand, “I […]

Church underground?

We’re seeing the persecution of Christians around the world increase at a stunning rate.  How close are we to seeing Christianity forced under ground in the west, here at home? Should we resist it or not? We know what you must be thinking: “You’re just fear-mongering. That’s not going to happen in our nation.” But […]
