Stop. Look. Love.

Stop. Look. Love.

If you hang around long enough, you’ll hear me talk about my kids. Not because my kids are perfect. I assure you, they are not. And it’s not because Alisha & I are the perfect parents. I assure you, I am not!

Alisha & I have a son & two daughters. Our…

A True Difference Maker

My Uncle Wayne once preached a sermon he entitled, “It’s Your Birthday.”

He was not a preacher. But he was a difference maker.

From time to time he was asked to preach at the church he attended in Columbus, GA. I have two of his sermons recorded and I listen to them…

The Good News about Good Friday

This past Sunday was what they call Palm Sunday.

It’s the day that, about 2000 years ago, Jesus entered into Jerusalem riding on a donkey.

Life After Death: The Power of Baptism

Is there life after death?

People always ask this question. And I wanted to know the answer too.

So, I did what everyone does when they have a question to which they don’t know the answer.  I asked Google!

Do you have one of these?  It’s very valuable.  It’s the kind of thing you normally don’t take out of the house.  In fact, if you’re anything like me… you have this in a secure place in your home.  Some of you probably even keep this in a fire proof safe, or…

3 Books on Baptism & the Baptized Life


For the last few weeks at Riverside where I’m blessed to preach, we’ve been talking about baptism.

You may have your own questions about baptism.  I’ve found that this is one of those things that people have a lot of assumptions about, but it’s also one of those things that people have a lot of…
