Update and New Look

new_year.jpgThanks for coming back to this blog.  I have taken a break from this blog for the past week or so and now plan to continue posting about four times per week.  

This blog exists to encourage people who follow Christ daily.  The posts vary.  For example, I will soon continue the series, "Before You Marry."  I will also conclude the series, "41 Things Ministers Ought to Know."  Most of the posts, however, are not focused toward a specific group of people.  As I write, I think about you, a normal everyday person who is just trying to deal with life.  These thoughts generally come from my own walk with God, my reading, experiences, and what I am learning each day.  

I really do value your comments and read each one.  As time permits, I attempt to acknowledge each comment.

You may want to look closely at the sidebar.  A number of links are new.  Others have been replaced.

(By the way, I have noticed that on this new template, previous posts have an extra space between each paragraph.  Hmmm.  Not sure what to do about that.)

Have a happy New Year!

  7. I really do like your new look here. Very nice. Wish I could do something of the same. Very neat, orderly. And good links as well on the side. But most of all you get to keep sharing your ministry in words on posts. I was wondering if there is anything online by which we can download your sermons/messages.
