In Memory of “Come Clean”

“Come Clean” was the street name of this man who died a few days ago behind a garbage dumpster alone, just across the street from Powerhouse Church. This is the picture of his memorial. A photo, a few plastic flowers, some candles, two booklets, and a white teddy bear on the spot where he wasContinue reading “In Memory of “Come Clean””

Speaking Life At The Hospital

Yesterday I went to the hospital to visit one of my “sheep”. I don’t know what other pastors do when they go here, but my errand was a little unusual.

I would think that she had not showered for weeks. I can take a lot,Continue reading “The Wages Of Sin …”

We traveled almost 2000 miles to get there, and as we crossed the border to the reservation we realized how far away this was from whatContinue reading “Hope Dealers in South Dakota”

Celebrating Our Three Prodigal Sons

This week on Valentine’s day we had a very special celebration at our church in Orlando. There were roses in vases, chocolate covered strawberries and some kind of non-alcoholic champagne at the table, but the party was not for Valentine, it was for our family and the homecoming of our three prodigal sons who finallyContinue reading “Celebrating Our Three Prodigal Sons”

The Good, The Bad And The Evil
