    As our nation has said its fond farewells to Senator John McCain (1936-2018), Americans including myself, have pondered the question, “How do you describe John McCain?” Senator McCain had a well-earned reputation as a “Maverick”, which means he did things his way, which sooner or later surprised, pleased, irritated, or chagrined everyone — and quite […]

      Editor’s Note: We received this article after publishing the story of Andrew Stoecklein who tragically took his life last weekend. The reason Andrew’s story is so baffling is because it really seemed as if Andrew was doing everything he knew to fight off the depression he was facing. As we grapple with Andrew’s story, let us consider the unique […]

Before Stoecklein Succumbed to Depression and Anxiety, He Preached on […]

    The Pew Research Center for Religion and Public Life has identified seven new boxes to place Americans in centering on the issue of belief. Sunday Stalwarts are the most religious group. Not only do they actively practice their faith, but they also are deeply involved in their religious congregations. God-and-Country Believers are less active in church groups […]

    There are many advantages to preaching through books of the Bible. One “disadvantage” is that you’ll occasionally have to preach through a text that you really do not yet fully understand.
