Intro to and overview of the New Testament. Watch as I share what diving into it's pages has done for my life and what it can do for you!
Most recent appearance on the "Beyond the Pew" video series for Catholic parents. Talking about the "not boring at all" Old Testament and it's purpose.
I was honored to give the opening keynote at the first annual REC-C Family Retreat. The theme is becoming a holy family, Jesus in our midst. I dive into 10 stories in the history of salvation to see what we can learn about growing closer to God from families in the Bible and early Church.
I wrote this blog over a year ago for Ablaze Ministries. One of the most famous quotes from Disney's Aladdin is "Do you trust me." This is an age old question from God to His people. Read more to find out how we can grow in trust.
Here is today's video from "Beyond the Pew" where I make a monthly appearance. This month's series is on common misconceptions of Jesus. In this video, I tackle the misconception that Jesus was weak in comparison to the "modern strong man".
I began my journey in ministry in 2008. I was often taught, either explicitly or by example of ministry leaders, to always bring your A-game to ministry, no matter what. Never show any weakness. Always look happy. Always make it look like you have it all figured out so that others will look at your perfect life and be inspired to live holy lives. There are two problems with that. First, who doesn't have any weaknesses, is always happy and lives a perfect life? Second, why are we lying to people, including ourselves?
A sending forth for those who work or volunteer in ministry. We walk through the stories in Scripture of many who were called and sent to share the good news of the Father. We also look at the beginning of Ad Gentes, the Vatican II document on missionary activity and what it means for those called and sent by God into ministry. We end with the overwhelming list of the promises of God that He is always with us.
If you need some encouragement in your ministry, give this a listen.
Today's blog addresses how many people view Christians as being "two-faced;" living one way at Church and another everywhere else. Read more to see what a recent video game I played and an experience in college taught me about how to deal with this issue.
