“A Great Help….”

Ministry is a ‘people’ business. In my years of ministry service and leadership training, I’ve encountered a wide range of people.

The Certainty of No Absolutes

With absolute certainty many ‘civilized’ people affirm that there are no absolutes.  Frederick Moore Vinson (1890-1953), former Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, said, “Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes.”  Francis Schaeffer cites Justice Vinson in his classic “How Should We Then Live?” In […]
