IS GOD CALLING YOU?

Have you ever been sitting in church when someone's phone goes off? It's both sad and funny at the same time. We've become so dependent on our cell phones that we don't ever consider going anywhere without them. Most people I know have let their land lines go and have become fully dependent on their cell phones. It's as if we cannot stand the thought of being unavailable to people. What about God? Would you say that you make yourself as readily available to Him as you do the everyone else who calls you? I believe God talks with us all the [...]

There’s an APP for that!

What do you do when you see a young girl dressed scantily? Do you move your family as far away from her as you can, hoping they didn't notice her? Do you reach out to her, hoping to learn if she's in trouble or not? Domestic sex trafficking is a real and growing issue. We'd all like to think it only takes place in third world countries, but the reality is it takes place not only in our nation, but in our cities and neighborhoods. According to Cornell Law School's Legal Information Institute, the term sex trafficking means, the recruitment, [...]

“Why do I need to know about this?”

"Why do I need to know about this?" That's what I overheard someone say as I stood outside of the sanctuary at Wesley United Methodist Church about to speak on the issue of sex trafficking in America.  It's a legitimate question and one most ask, whether out loud or not.  Why do we need to learn all we can about this heinous crime? What can we do about it? As I started to walk into the sanctuary, I had a little talk with Jesus.  He and I are like that; we talk.  Whenever I'm in need of help, which is [...]
