  • To the pastors and those who hold leadership positions in The New Testament Church. We must understand that we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and that it is God the Holy Spirit that gives spiritual gifts as he sees fit (1Cor. 12:7-11, Ephesians 4:11-12). It is my prayer that this letter be read in its entirety and that the scriptural references be studied in their context and that any disagreement be scripturally supported.

  • Hello once again, my friends. As I sit typing this we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of the summer rut. By the summer rut I mean, full scale temperatures, but not quite to the point of taking full advantage of summer produce. I call this the summer rut. The tomatoes, sweet corn and many of the fruit trees are there but not quite ready to pick and eat. But, let’s not lament. There are plenty of early veggies and fruits that are available that we can take advantage of.
