Where Is the Justice?

Why do victims of violence have to get over stuff? Why are those who perpetrate violence getting away with it? This is the essence of my post today. Those who've gotten over something wonder why others continue to struggle with it. They can't understand why someone who has been severely traumatized won't let go.

When Will I Find It?

Next Level Men’s Groups

Men’s groups in our churches have many functions. We have social activities like golf outings, BBQ’s, and softball leagues; we accomplish much-needed and appreciated work to support the needy through construction projects, skilled trades, and missional activities. These are all important components for not only the men, but the church, the community and the world … Continue reading Next Level Men’s Groups
