  • Paralysis By Analysis

    Contributed by Jack Warford on Apr 13, 2001
    based on 104 ratings

    Many churches today have a paralysis brought on by analysis; they are so busy gathering and reporting numbers that their lambs and sheep are not being fed, and their flock is not being cared for. Resulting in spiritual paralysis.

    Why are we so fixated on counting numbers? Why do most pastors think of success as it relates to numbers? Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus tell us to count the sheep. He tells Peter if you love Me then you will feed my lambs, care for my sheep, and feed my sheep. Many churches today have a more

    based on 1 rating

    There is always much to learn from the risen Christ. At the Sea of Galilee, the disciples learned that a small change can make a huge difference, and that we have a charge to keep.

    Like many other professions, keeping up clergy credentials in the United Methodist Church requires a program of continuing education. Exactly what direction that continuing ed takes can vary according to the pastor’s needs or the churches needs, but the point is to make sure that the clergy more

  • Yes, I Love You, More Than You Can Imagine

    Contributed by Bob Amundsen on Apr 17, 2010
    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus asks Peter if he loves him and if he is truly ready to become a disciple. It is a question that Jesus asks of us today. If we know he loves us, how come we don't always do what he wants us to do which is to spread his message to others.

    Our reading this morning comes from the book of John Chapter 21: verses 1-19. It is a story that we might be familiar with, but if not it is an easy story to follow. It was written by the Apostle John, who by now if many of you don’t know is my favorite Gospel writer. John to me is the more
