Last Tuesday evening I spoke to the men of the Maranatha Mens Ministry on the topic of being a dad and struggling with the pulling of career and the priority of family.  Balance is not achievable nor Biblical, but rather we need  to follow our priorities and we need to be men of our word. Attached below are the slides of the presentation.


Can you disagree with people without sinning?

Is it possible to argue without sinning? Can you engage in Godly arguing?

You may be surprised  by the answers. There are kinds of arguments that just need to be avoided. There are also ways to engage in legitimate arguments with a sinful attitude, method, behavior motives. But Paul told Timothy he needed to verbally confront people causing quarrels in local churches, as long  as he followed Paul’s requirement that the arguing be gentle, patient, kind and gracious.  See my notes from last Thursday’s home fellowship group in Poway.

Last week I gave a presentation to the Maranatha Men about being thankful on thanksgiving. I already posted a PDF of the slides from that message, but here now available to you is the audio/vidio version. My actual talk appears halfway into the recording around the 00:21 mark. You can single click the scroll bar and drag it to the right if you want to bypass the mens’ meeting introductory comments.

I will be speaking at Maranatha Chapel this weekend (Saturday evening at 6 pm, July 19 and and Sunday morning, July 20, at both 8:30 and 10:30 services)  .

My message is entitled, “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions, or how to find God’s will for your life.

I will cover

  1. necessary steps in making life and lifestyle decisions,
  2. what questions always need to be asked and answered, and
  3. how you identify God’s guidance through his Holy Spirit and through circumstances.

I hope you will be able to attend.
