Love, the Base of Worship

by PG Athui If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do

The Relationship Between God and Music

By Suzanne Provagna One of the characteristics I love about God is that He is direct. Every word has direction and meaning. Like the first commandment: Deuteronomy 5:6 “I am the LORD your GOD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.” Please

Gracefully Broken

Rewritten/adapted by Dawn Kelley, original author unknown Just the other night, I was in a long line at a local store when I noticed a mother with two children behind me.  One of the children was just a toddler and the other was older, probably in his early teens.  The older brother had a pack

The Open Door

By John Martin I have a question that I would like to ask my fellow pastors; “Do you have an open-door policy?” I once prided myself on having an open-door policy with any and every organization that I worked with. I would tell people, “Please, stop by anytime. I’m always ready to listen.” It was

Thankful in Every Circumstance

This article is an excerpt from Pure Praise: A Heart-focused Bible Study on Worship by Dwayne Moore.

Forgiveness

A Song of Sorrow

By John Martin There are times when life is just plain hard. There are moments when the words of Job seem far too real; “We’re all adrift in the same boat: too few days, too many troubles.” (Job 14:1 – The Message) I find myself in one of those seasons of life when I too
