Spiritual Authority

Over our past 2 outreaches, I've been invited in to homes to pray over 'weird spiritual activity.'  Basically, two of our neighbors have been having demonic influences in their home and it's been manifesting in many destructive ways.

October Recap: Overcoming the World

“In this world you will have trouble; but take heart I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 I always feel a bit awkward writing these monthly newsletters.

Spring Review & Summer Forecast

A Day in the Neighborhood It's a Thursday evening.  I just came inside from doing yard work with at least 7 of the neighborhood kids who were taking lazy rotations to 'help' me shovel and move dirt.  While we work, we take breaks to watch about a half dozen other neighborhood boys and girls take … Continue reading Spring Review & Summer Forecast
