The Battle Belongs to the Lord- 12-6-22

Greetings Pray-ers, Some time has passed since last writing about Psalm 91, so I will do a mini recap of what has been shared already. I’m interested in the concept of “bookends” within scriptures – thoughts written down to encircle greater thoughts. And yet, the “bookends” themselves become what is most critical. The example I shared came out […]

Railroaded- 12-5-22

As railroad workers threaten to strike for better wages and working conditions, Congress took action to settle the dispute through an act of Congress. This doesn’t look like the collective bargaining system that has settled other labor negotiations. There is a slang meaning to the term railroaded: “To coerce, trick or seduce others into a course […]

Happy Thanksgiving!- 11-22-22

Greetings Pray-ers, True story! When early in my faith, a dear friend shared her journey through depression.  People were constantly “encouraging” her to “think of things she was grateful for” and to “count her many blessings”. We probably have all said and or heard similar things more than once in our lifetimes. Our desire is noble. We want to […]

Your Employees' Financial Literacy

Exodus 18:20"Teach them His decrees and instructions, and show them the way they are to live and how they are to behave." What burden do we carry when our employees are financially stressed?  Low productivity due to preoccupation of finances.  Risk of poor judgement as they oversee your company assets.  External coping mechanisms such as drugs […]

Will You Help Shape the Future? Continued

According to research done by Dr. Daniel Gilbert of Harvard, people are really bad at predicting who they will be in the future. Organizations are even worse. The reason is simple: it’s far easier to remember the past than to imagine the future. Because we don’t take the time to imagine the future, we assume […]

Transformed People Transform Cities (Part Two)

I grew up in the church, and never remember a time when I wasn’t a believer.  My parents tell stories of me trying to evangelize the kids walking down the street when I was too young to go to school with them.  Our two years of Bible study (known as confirmation) during junior high weren’t […]

Transformed People Transform Cities (and the world)

On October 31, 2017, the world will recognize the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  It would be quite the understatement to say that the transformation that took place in the life of a Catholic monk, Martin Luther, transformed a city or even the Church.  Truly, Luther’s personal, internal transformation changed the world, rewriting the political […]

Disinformation or Propaganda? -11-28-22

We all know the bible tells us not to lie and that it’s immoral not to tell the truth. In these days, when free speech goes against the controllers of society’s narrative, the word misinformation and […]

Who Killed Democracy?- 11-14-22

There was much talk about democracy being on the ballot this year. I’m not too sure that many people are concerned about democracy. I know that’s true because according to the Arizona Secretary of State’s website, here in Arizona, only 53% of registered voters voted. That means that 27% of those who voted in Arizona […]

Psalm 91- 10-25-22

 Greetings Pray-ers,I hope you were able to read Psalm 90:1 – 91:1 in your spare time this past week. Did you notice how the first verse of each Psalm “book-ended” the remainder of Psalm 90? Looking through the lens that both of these Psalms were written by Moses, 90:1 tells us of his acknowledgment that:  Lord, you […]

KOINONIA

It is a word which has been overused to the point of detracting from the true meaning of Koinonia. It is commonality of belief, purpose and a bond through that belief and purpose which spurs one to serve for the shear pleasure in doing so.
