Ed asked me to speak on evangelism as we are preparing for this Missions Conference focused on developing a culture of evangelism. And so I thought this morning that I would begin by sharing with you my most recent experience in evangelism. We were in Orlando about a week ago on a sunny, Saturday morning, 75 degrees - a beautiful Florida day. And I was in the backyard...

Let me ask you to turn to Luke chapter 2. We want to look at the very end of that chapter.

Now that Advent is over, Christmas has come and...

God Reigns

In a fascinating book entitled, Affluenza: How to be Successful and Stay Sane, Oliver James analyzes the dysfunctions of contemporary western culture that have been generated by the relentless acquisitiveness and greed that is so characteristic of our age. “Consumption,” he says, “holds out the false promise that an internal lack can be fixed by an external means. We medicate our misery through buying things.” And then he illustrates...
