Wake up!

If you want to change a culture, change it’s art.  Art that is created from a place of worship, a place of abiding in the Presence of the Lord sets a transaction in motion that we can’t even begin to understand.  Holy Spirit invades the work and it serves as a gateway for others to […]

In Between

In between.  Neither here nor there.  State of transition.  All apt descriptions for what many people experienced this week throughout the Midsouth as ice and snow disrupted plans, rearranged schedules, closed schools, businesses, and churches alike.  Prepared for one type of week, we found ourselves living a different type of week.

Gateway Experiences

In the midst of the Spring Showcase for Christian Meeting and Convention Association in 2011 a young woman is frantic.  She is a self-professed “type A” personality which suits her well as a meeting planner.  She is in control of her life.  She has a rosy future.  She has the one and five year plan […]
