“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.” -Micah 7:8
Yesterday I had the privilege of talking with Donny Parrish, Director of Church Ministries for the BMA of America about church ministry today. My heart and eyes were opened to some great principles concerning reaching the lost today. I was also reminded to lay down my own preferences in ministry so that I might be as effective and flexible as possible to see what the Holy Spirit wants to do next.
After a decade and more of increased intensity in natural disasters, rising temperatures in the oceans, chunks of ice the size of states breaking off of the Arctic and Antarctic, we’ve come to realize that something about planet earth is changing. Well… at least some of us realize it. Let me say first of all that I am not a scientist and I do not wish to argue either side of the global warming debate. Rather, I’m interested in discovering a Christian response to the reality of massive global changes.
