My Sunday Song


Kilen's Spot

The Outlaw 

Some say he was an outlaw, that he roamed across the land,

With a band of unschooled ruffians and few old fishermen,

No one knew just where he came from, or exactly what he’d done,

But they said it must be something bad that kept him on the run.

Some say he was a poet, that he’d stand upon the hill

That his voice could calm an angry crowd and make the waves stand still

That he spoke in many parables that few could understand

But the people sat for hours just to listen to this man.

Some say a politician who spoke of being free,

He was followed by the masses on the shores of Galilee,

He spoke out against corruption and he bowed to no decree,

And they feared his strength and power so they nailed him to a tree.

Some say he was a sorcerer…

Purging Away the Stuff


Most appreciated message. Seems this is a season for purging for a lot of us.

Pastor Chris Owens - - Musings, Rants, and Reflections

piles of boxesI am currently in the midst of my fifth move in ten years. Through life changes and the itinerant ministry system I’m a part of as a United Methodist pastor, periodic moving has become part of my lifestyle. I always hear people complain about the pain and hassle of moving, and I’m feeling that pain pretty badly right now. If it wasn’t for all this stuff, moving would be so much easier, of course.

Last night I went through one of the more painful aspects of our impending move: purging. I have stuff boxed up that I haven’t gone through since the last move. Some of it has been boxed up for several moves. Then it dawned on me that I can’t keep schlepping around boxes of unopened stuff. All that stuff has to get moved and stored and most likely, eventually moved again. Why keep doing that? So… it was…

Note: The Prosperity Gospel


Information Hub

The Prosperity Gospel

The Prosperity Gospel is a term known by many but people really don’t understand it. God tells us that if we have faith as the size of a mustard seed anything is possible in his name.

Many people don’t realize that . Their are preachers who tell their members this concept and they too live by it that’s why they call it prosperity. I’m not sure if you have heard of this Christian rapper who made a song named fal$e preachers but she made a song about preachers who she think are false prophets.

I have said it and I will say it again if you’re not God you don’t have the authority to call anyone a false prophet. One of the preachers she listed was Joel Osteen.

I am very familiar with Joel Osteen and his preaching style. Joel uplifts his members and he tells them…

Empty Hands


Beautiful!!! gifts of love……precious!

Wings of the Dawn

isaiah fiftyeightten
In October last year the Lord put something on my heart -send one shoebox size box with gift cards and notes of encouragement and prayer to one family devastated by Sandy. I had no idea where to start. God did. He directed the path and eventually 13 boxes with prayer cards and gift cards were sent to families on the east coast.

I’ve been changed since. I have seen God work in so many details and am convinced that He is able to use our tiniest offerings of love and help to bring His Light into a hurting world.

Here we are, only 7 months later. So many hurt and out of home and possessions. Words we want to speak to the hurt often fail.  However, our prayers never fail. We begin by asking God to change our hearts so they hurt for and with our neighbors. Then, as we…

Got Troubles?


Larry Who

gospel-for-asia-TD13-00752

In my younger and single days, my alarm rang at 2:55 AM. I jumped out of bed, went to the bathroom, and put on sweat pants and a sweatshirt. I next bowed my knees and prayed till 6 AM at which time I took a shower, ate breakfast, and dressed for the day.  I then walked over to my church and prayed for an hour. Afterward, I put in a full day’s work as a laborer or a car salesman.

This was my routine for almost ten years.

As you can imagine, I earned a reputation as a prayer warrior. People asked me to pray for them or their problems, which I gladly did. I would write their names down and add them to a list. Praying for others was a priority in my life.

But what about my family and my needs?

I usually spent just seconds praying for…
