In This Season of Lies, Where Are the Truth Sayers?

Amidst unrevealed tax returns, deleted emails and hidden agendas of this day, cynicism beckons. It woos to rule our choices, govern our emotions and direct our attention. And if we’re not careful, we will fall prey. We can’t escape the constant chatter over the 2016 US Presidential election. We hear it at work, on TV and from friends and family.

How to Embrace God’s Purpose for Your Life NOW

Time is ever-present; sometimes we simply don’t acknowledging its existence. “I’m here”, time says. Yet I lose it. All the while it surrounds me – my living, my being.  Sometimes I cheapen it with agenda or, even worse, apathy.
