Amid Murphy—Love’s Excelling

Amid Murphy—Love’s Excelling

What did Murphy say? If it can happen, it will? It’s something like that, I think. Murphy struck again this week—this time in a BIG way.

Sunday began like any other. We had three wonderful services with great music, praise and worship; a message for the masses; times of fellowship and laughter; the anointing of our new youth director; and then…for me, vacation. Yes—a break from the grind.

The time had finally arrived for a bit of R-N-R, a chance to relax before the Christmas hustle-and-bustle. And, I had plans. Yes. I had plans for doing nothing.

Sleeping-in—it was most definitely at the top of the list. I’d even thought about losing myself mindlessly in a SyFy® marathon, maybe some Battlestar Galactica and other blow-em in outer space type shows.

Yup, I had plans. But, so did Murphy. Continue reading

Soaked in the Spirit

Soaked in the Spirit

To my  brothers and sisters, all who are loved by God and called to be his holy people: Grace and peace to you in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

Over the last two months, I’ve shared a portion of the dream God revealed. This month, I want to continue into its heart and share what that means for you and me.

Scene two began like this. I was standing outside in a parking lot during a great downpour. Many others were there too. Remarkably, no one ran from the rain. It was a healing rain, and it soaked everyone to the bone. Continue reading

Iron Dome of Love and Prayer

Iron Dome of Love and Prayer

I hope this note finds you well, living in the grace and peace of Jesus Christ.

Recently, over the last few weeks, St. Paul’s has come under intense, spiritual attack. Over the last 48 hours, in my gut, I’ve felt the need to share what we’re encountering.

Like the recent war in Israel, our enemy the devil, has been sending a constant barrage of spiritual rockets our way. He’s much like Hamas: a terrorist who attacks from homes, hospitals, and from behind human shields. Over the recent weeks, he’s been attacking us in much this way. His attacks are causing many to become weary—maybe even you. Continue reading
