Posthumous Guest Post – Walt Miller

Mentors.  What a treasure it is to have someone willing to come alongside us.  Someone older, wiser, and willing to invest in the next generation.  I have been blessed to have had such people in my life, especially during difficult seasons. Two such mentors, Walt & Jane Miller, will always hold a very special place…

Five Loaves & Two Fish

One of the most well-known miracles of Jesus began with 5 small loaves and 2 small fish – the feeding of the 5,000 (John 6:1-15).  Although 5,000 only accounted for the men present, not women and children.  Scholars estimate the number fed was actually somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000.*  Yet it all began with 5 small loaves and…

Nothing to Prove

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. Romans 15:7 – NIV I am always amazed when I hear highly successful people share their experiences of people not believing in their ability to accomplish their dreams. It is all too common for people to tear each other…
