What is Servant-Leadership?

John 13: 3-17:  To be a good leader, not only do you need to be willing to serve, but you must be willing to be served.  John 13:3-17: is the story of Jesus washing the disciples feet.  It is a perfect example of Servant-Leadership.

Can I really feel peace and joy every day?

Hebrews 12: 22-24:  To those of you like me, suffer from periodic periods of feeling down, hopeless; we need to remember this:  We have come to Mount Zion.

Why should I read the Bible?

1 Peter 5b-6: Don’t be proud and cast your cares upon Jesus.  These verses are warning us against even working closely with people who are proud.  Recently I found myself caught up in a training program which promised to teach me how to be a better public speaker and writer.  I did learn a few things. ...
