Is Fear the Driving Force in your Ministry?…02/13/2014

February 13, 2014 by  
Filed under church, youth

I have been making the same observation over the last 5 years or so. So many youth ministries or events have been focused on fear. I’m trying to focus on the things Jesus did, namely loving God and loving your neighbor. It’s not to say that there are things that I don’t fear about or […]

We Would all Love Instant Transformation…01/30/2014

Since becoming the youth ministry leader with Mary, I have felt that I need to teach about the Old Testament stories, with the emphasis on love. Now, I’m feeling the need to stress more out of Jesus’s teaching on the “Sermon on the Mount,” (Matt. 5-7 or Luke 6). However, it can be frustrating when […]

If you follow this blog or my microblog, you that my life is blur sometimes. Not to mention that I try to keep a weather blog as well. This is what is going on… The government shutdown – yes, this has finally caught up with us. I mean that it was bound to happen. They threaten […]

Judgement and Grace

May 17, 2013 by  
Filed under church, ministry

Since I have been preaching to the youth group, the Great Commandment, and the Great Commission, and how the Bible keeps pointing back to that, I have been having the thoughts about judgement versus grace. Brian Zahnd has been pointing out that Jesus preached against the “who’s in, and who’s out” thought.  Then I ran […]

Why would God End the world?…5/2/2013

I’ve been trying to share my youth messages that I have been doing. Both by sharing the text, and recording an mp3. However, since I’m having trouble affording hosting, probably only text for the time being. I had a week where I asked the students what questions they have. One question was “Why would God […]

What This Past Lent Has Taught Me

May 6, 2013 by  
Filed under church, Opinion

Don’t fear. That phrase is in the bible from one person’s count, 365 times. As people have told me one for everyday of the year. As I have journeyed through this Lenten season. There have been several things, I feel, that God has been speaking to me on. Continue the less meat, higher veggie diet.  […]

More Grace and why I am on this kick

July 26, 2012 by  
Filed under church, Family, ministry, Opinion

I’m not a great writer. I’m good, to the extent that I do get compliments when somebody reads these posts from time to time, but not great. Sometimes, I wish that more people read my blog and commented on what I had written, if only to learn from others as they read what I said. […]

The Jeff Show – #4 – Who should be served by the church?

February 3, 2012 by  
Filed under church, ministry, Podcasts

Recently, I feel like there has been a growing amount of reading material that has speaking to me about Grace,  as I meditate on it. You know, helping your neighbor, and loving your enemy. I was perusing through Facebook, one morning, and ran into my union’s Facebook page. There are all sorts of people in […]
