Immigrants

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, In 2007, I had a dream that has never left my heart. In the dream, I was in a church meeting that was made up of immigrants. The pastor abruptly left the church service and went to the mall, leaving Becky and myself to minister to the immigrants. [...]

Leadership Essentials

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, I have been in leadership either in the church or the business arena for over 30 years now.

Spiritual Fathers and Mothers

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, If you are part of the older generation, take heart. Your most fruitful and blessed time is in front of you.

It Takes A Church

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, Regardless of what we think, feel, or believe about the place same-sex marriage has in the United States, we now live in the reality that it is legal.

Cross Your Jordan

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, In the Old Testament, the raging waters of the Jordan River was the last obstacle that the children of Israel would encounter before they entered the Promised Land.

Transitions

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, Have you gone through a time when you felt like you should know the answers to your life’s situations, but they seemed to keep eluding you? And even worse, when you felt like you needed God the most, He seemed almost eerily quiet. If that is happening to [...]

The River of Time

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, There is a Holy Spirit River and there is a River of Time. The Holy Spirit River taught me some things about the River of Time. There are some parallels. Just like the Holy Spirit River, the River of Time is one of the most precious gifts given [...]

Letting Go And Holding On

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, I believe God lights the fire on the altar, but empowers His people with free flowing grace to keep the fire burning (Lev. 6:9-13). Every move of God starts because of God and it seems they stop because we can’t figure out how to keep the fire burning. [...]
