I believe that the two most important disciplines for a pastor are prayer and the ministry of the word (cf. Acts 6:4). Like many pastors, I tend to be stronger in one area than in the other.

Many “Thanks” to Andrew King for his words here!
At this point, you have likely seen the nightmare that looms behind the placid language of the abortion industry. While Planned Parenthood says that during your procedure “medical instruments and a suction machine gently empty your uterus,” viewers of this week’s undercover video saw arms and lungs. There is now no escaping the violence of abortion; but then again, there never was.

In the face of these revelations, one of this nation's largest abortion … Continue reading The Truth Behind Planned Parenthood’s 3%

Our hope is that the advice in this little book would spur all of us on to prayer for our church family, our community, and our world for the glory of God. And what better way to pray than to … Continue reading Praying the Bible
Columnist Charles Krauthammer made a connection between a shift in public perception on abortion in recent years with the widespread application of ultrasound machines on pregnant mothers. On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” last Tuesday Krauthammer said, “The first change in public opinion on abortion, when it began to go less pro-choice, was with … Continue reading Mary, Elizabeth, and the Ultrasound That Wasn’t Needed
In yesterday's sermon on Psalm 10 I mentioned ways in which you help the cause of the vulnerable and the weak, in particular by working to protect the life of unborn babies. Today, the United States Senate is debating a bill (S.1881) that seeks to prohibit Federal funding of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. In recent weeks, … Continue reading How to Contact Your Elected Officials re: Planned Parenthood
