The Huge "Leap Of Faith" Required Of The Church When It Comes To Land And Buildings

Faith And Church Building Programs

It first occurred to me in the first view years of our church when we were in the beginning stages of raising the funds for land and a new building.

David Allen On “The Weekly Review”

This Week's Top Quote From Around The Web

David Allen

If you’re like most people, you’ve found that things can get relatively out of control during the course of a few days of operational intensity. That’s to be expected, but it will continue to increase in tandem with the ubiquity of your always-on, connected world. You wouldn’t want to distract yourself from too much of the work at hand in an effort to stay totally “squeaky clean” all the time. But in order to afford … [Read more...]

Talent Is Never Enough

Discover The Choices That Will Take You Beyond Your Talent

Talent Is Never Enough Book Cover - 100 Wide

Kevin's Review ... I've been a little bit turned off by many of the business books I've browsed to decide whether or not to read. They have all seemed to "rehash" the same concepts. You know ... they all say the same thing only with a slightly different slant or perspective. In other words, it's all the same stuff! This is an unhealthy perspective and not even accurate. Having just finished this book (and now having … [Read more...]

Matt Perman On “Forgiveness and Productivity”

Matt Perman

What does the Bible say about how God wants to be served? This is an important question, for it’s possible to begin with God in the wrong way. If we view centering our productivity on God as a matter of identifying his standards and then seeking to meet them through our own efforts, we have missed the point.
