Introduction to First Peter

This first writing of Simon Peter’s is the very tonic you and I need. Our introductory instruction will show how singularity qualified this vulnerable and effusive man is in guiding you and I through the sufferings of life. But first, what do we know about him from the Bible? We know he was a Fisherman: As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and…

Fear Smacking

What, Me Worry? – Why teach this?  You might say “I don’t really think I have a problem here – I mean I’m not really afraid of anything.” Well okay, I can hear that.

Recovery, 2 of 5 – How Change Happens

Welcome to the Second of Five Instructions At Restart we are committed to Recovery – for each of us.   Because in a vey real sense, we all are addicts; we all are captured and held hostage by those things which entangle our living and knock us off the Jesus Path.  This is the second of five installments on Recovery.   These are not steps; not something one does and…
