Moving Forward

Do you remember looking at lists of ‘stressors’ and seeing your problems? Life happens. “Yes.” It is there. It’s OK to be upset or almost unglued, because ours is a common and real problem. That was yesterday. But here we are today, a widow. (I still don’t like the word.) Numb, puzzled, vulnerable, sad, frightened, angry, yet laughing at things most don’t find so funny.

Resources

We inform, encourage, and equip widows. We provide books, DVD¹s, Journals, CD¹s, radio podcasts, church resources and tools, spiritually based and practical. Internationally we provide skill training for widows for economic independence.

Celebrity pastors

September 24, 2018

I long for heaven and to be a part of Jesus’ bride, the perfect church. On earth, we’re tarnished and there’s lots to be ashamed of.   First know that I have no right to be called Jesus’ bride.  Tarnished for sure, but forgiven.  I want to be a part of a thriving church here on earth. Some appear to be, then are not.   Our culture has cultivated celebrity status pastors.  They are seen as the success factor of the church.  We are setting them up to becoming narcissistic.  Some forget that God gifted them as orators, or other […]
