Lessons on Friendship

When we were young friendship happened to us. Believing that friendship will “just happen to us” is an immature perspective on adult friendship

The wish-dream of friendship is a hindrance to real, biblical friendship. When we hold an ideal of friendship in our minds, believing it's attainable, we hold a standard above the heads of the real men and women God has placed in our lives and then wonder why we’re constantly disappointed by the realities, complexities, and difficulties in our relationships. 

REDEMPTION GROUPS: MY PERSPECTIVE

REDEMPTION GROUPS: MY PERSPECTIVE

When people ask me to explain Redemption Groups I usually refer to the basic definition from Mike Wilkerson: “A Redemption Group is an intense small group that digs deep into difficult and seldom-discussed areas of life, such as abuse, addiction, and trials of all sorts…Far beyond Bible study, Redemption Groups are about life study—your life connecting with Jesus’ life. Participants challenge one another, and the Word reveals hearts.” 

My Experience Of Lone Willow Baptist Church

My Experience Of Lone Willow Baptist Church

I drove away from the parking lot of the Korean Central Church building on Sunday at 10:10am just after singing the first two songs with my Grace family. As I made my way down Chisholm Trail I prayed and listened to a pastor talk about his experience of being a part of revitalizing First Baptist Church, Durham the past 20 years. It gave me hope and excitement for what I was driving towards. After 35 minutes I came over the hill on FM 1434 and saw a steeple. A steeple that has been pointing to the glory of God for decades.
