From the blog this week: Marks of a Healthy Church- A Biblical Understanding of Evangelism

The Time I Went Under Church Discipline

“‘Jeff,’ John began, ‘we are here because we need to talk to you about something. A sin.’ My stomach hit the warped wood floor. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. What did I do? What’s happening? Scrambling for words, scanning my memories, I said, ‘Oh. Man. Okay.'”

God’s Will and My Special Needs Son

” I do believe that God can heal Levi, but that does not mean that he will.  I begin to doubt my faith.  Is my son not experiencing the fullness that God has for him? Have the prayers I offered over the past seven-plus years been lacking; therefore, is Levi’s current situation my fault.  Why isn’t God healing Levi?”
