The following is a guest article written by Amy Tori. In an increasingly unsettled world, it’s important to find anchors in life to help us weather any challenges and times of emotional turmoil. It’s in times of great difficulty that many turn to their faith for extra guidance. Spending more time in the presence of God, or simply communicating with God, can reveal meaning and light in even the darkest of circumstances.

The following article is from Reimagining Church by Frank Viola, the part of the book entitled “Who is Your Covering?” (copyright 2008, David C. Cook). The endnotes aren’t included in the article, but they appear in the book. REIMAGINING LEADERSHIP The New Testament doctrine of ministry rests therefore not on the clergy-laity distinction but on the twin and complimentary pillars of the priesthood of all believers and the gifts of the Spirit. Today, four centuries after the Reformation, the full… Read more

To natural minds, Jesus’ ministry ended in failure on two counts: (1) a failure in Galilee when most of His followers turned away from Him, and (2) a failure in Jerusalem when His disciples deserted Him, and He was put to death on a cross. But the work of Christ went on. Jesus was raised by His Father and ascended to God’s right hand (Eph. 1:20–22; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3; 7:26; 8:1; 10:12). But He didn’t retire, nor was He… Read more

I don’t care what form in which it comes . . . be it organic church, simple church, house church, para-church organizations, or traditional churches that are strong on community . . . what I address in this conference message is off the radar screen for many Christians today. And even if they’ve read or heard about it, when pressure is put upon them or their expectations aren’t met, they forget all about it. Failure to lay hold of this… Read more

The truth can be shocking. And it’s no less so when one examines the spiritual life of one of the greatest icons of music — Elvis Presley. What did Elvis believe about Jesus? What was his spirituality like? What did he think about God and did he have a relationship with Him? The Seeker King: A Spiritual Biography of Elvis Presley by Gary Tillery is a remarkable book about the spiritual ideas and life of the larger-than-life personality, Elvis Presley…. Read more

“There have been some who were so preoccupied with spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ.” ~ C.S. Lewis I wish I knew about this quote when I wrote Jesus Manifesto with Len Sweet. It sums up our entire argument. Alas, better late than never. Read more
