As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’ll be returning soon to my series on “What I Wish (as a Pastor) that I had Known, Understood, Believed and Lived 30 years ago.” I’ll be sharing “Lesson 8” (out of 12). My summer has been far busier than anticipated due (by God’s grace) to continued ministry growth and expansion. I need and appreciate your prayers!

I’m looking forward to lesson #8, which will deal with the subject of “determination” (or “perseverance” – Gal. 6:9-10; 1 Cor. 15:58) in ministry. I’ll be tackling the difference between “Spirit-led determination” and “flesh-driven stubbornness.” One is central and vital to long-term, effective, God-honoring ministry and the other has the potential to ruin a person’s ministry and long term influence.

This week, however, I wanted to share an article with you that I think is of great importance and relevance for the day and age in which we are living.

The article, entitled:  “Does the Word ‘Evangelical’ Mean Anything Anymore?” was written by Randy Alcorn just a few weeks ago. Once again, it mirrors similar conversations and thoughts of late and articulates everything far better than I could. I would encourage you to take 2-3 minutes and read the article.
