You’re Right, I Don’t Trust You…Yet!

You’re Right, I Don’t Trust You…Yet!

Today’s post is from a friend of mine who has a unique ministry to hurting people. Mitch Schultz leads the Fruitful Vine Ministry and is the author of three books including Fires of Sorrow and Did I Say the Right Thing. (I believe this book is an essential for anyone who desires to minister to grieving people biblically and graciously.) “You just don’t trust me,”...

GEMS and Millennial Sub-Cultures

GEMS and Millennial Sub-Cultures

“GEMS,” was trademarked as early as June 2012 by XO Group. Over the last couple of years, millennial women have made it into an art. However, perhaps it was the gathering of marketing and research executives in late June of 2014 at the offices of TIME Inc. in New York City that placed the real spotlight on this sub-target. This was not a convention about...

Five Principles I Learned from a Friend

Five Principles I Learned from a Friend

One of my greatest blessings is working with people who are my friends. It is also a blessing when you can say that about a director of your ministry. Dr. George Theis was a former Director of Word of Life Fellowship and he was my friend. On July 2, 2014 he went home to be with the Lord. As I reflected on my friendship with...

My Next Forty Years of Ministry

My Next Forty Years of Ministry

I always thought people who had been in ministry for forty years were old, until my wife Betsi and I joined their ranks. Now I have changed my mind. I am formulating a new perspective about us, one that not only appreciates the past but looks to the future. Forty years does not sound nearly as long when you say things like: 350,400 hours 14,600...

The Millennial Wine

The Millennial Wine

If you work with Millennials then you have probably had multiple discussions and/or debates about alcohol. The purpose of this blog is not to address the topic of drinking but to inform you of a trend. Millennials are changing the culture as wine consumers and because they now represent one third of the core drinkers, the industry has taken note. It is not that Millennials...

The Power of Teamwork

The Power of Teamwork

The first time I climbed these two Adirondack Mountains, I went alone. It was a day of personal reflection, and I never remember considering the leadership principle of teamwork. The summer had been hot and dry, so crossing the small and lazy Indian Pass Brook was uneventful. I was on my way to “Street and Nye,” numbers twenty-two and twenty-three of my quest to climb...

Enabling vs Helping

Enabling vs Helping

Enabling is doing for someone what they could and should be doing for themselves. Helping is doing something for someone which they are NOT capable of doing for themselves. As we minister to people our goal should be to help not enable! “Enabling is reacting to a person in such a way as to shield them from experiencing the full impact of the harmful consequences...

Interpreting World Events

Interpreting World Events

Every day the twenty-four hour news channels broadcast world events into our homes, vehicles and earphones. The internet is an informational geyser serving as a never ending resource of someone else’s opinions on any given topic. We do not lack today for information: but what about accurate information? Did you ever watch a news broadcast or surf the net and wonder, “What is really going...
