Bursting Into Praise!

Some times I think my ‘praise’ is too neat and tidy–planned, structured and declared publicly in ‘appropriate’ ways.

Rose Publishing

Rose Publishing offers some excellent resources for Bible study.  Free charts are available by email as samples of their excellent products.  I had used them in various settings and found them insightful, and well illustrated.

“A Lack of Prosperity Gospel”

I’m thinking of starting a new denomination (not really, but the idea did cross my mind).  I’d call it “A Lack of Prosperity” Gospel Ministry.
