Spared from COVID? Offer Streams of Mercy

Walking out of our lovely, in-person commencement ceremonies last month, I found myself humming a classic hymn of the faith, thanks to Stewart Foster, talented organist from the Royal Poinciana Chapel in Palm Beach. The soft strains of Stewart’s music filled the spaces between the names called out as graduates received their diplomas. One particular […]

Franklin Graham: God’s Word Is Always True

Two years ago, we held an evangelistic Crusade in the seaside town of Blackpool, England. Nine thousand people came to hear us proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Hundreds made confessions of faith! This was in spite of intense opposition from the LGBTQ community, which objected to the advertising message on public transportation […]

Living Letters

“You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts” (2 Corinthians 3:2-3).   […]

It’s Hard to Listen While You Preach

I was recently triggered to think about how I listen. We often listen with more than our ears. We have all been guilty of listening without really listening. We all chuckle when a comedian or speaker shares the scenario where, as one is speaking, the other is not listening but thinking of what they will […]

Life Lessons Learned Through The Magic of Music

How do you give a child the gift of music? I thought about that recently, when after a busy, challenging day, I reached for my violin and once again enjoyed the relaxing outlet it provides. I thought about my high school orchestra conductor: one of my favorite and most influential teachers. I realized he cultivated […]

Corporate Prayer: Worth The Investment

For a few hours every year, the daily work of OneHope’s ministry comes to an abrupt halt. An intentional pause and recalibration. The OneHope team participates in corporate times of prayer. Although these gatherings cost thousands of dollars in manpower, they are undoubtedly worth the return on investment.  We meet to publicly glorify God and […]

Unity: A Death and Resurrection

Unity is a popular word these days — and why wouldn’t it be? In a world dominated by vaccine conspiracies, feuds over masks, political division, racial unrest and economic uncertainty, the call to unity seems refreshing and warranted. In the last few weeks alone, several Christian and non-Christian books on the topic of unity have […]

Six Myths About Research

One of the first questions I ask leaders who want input on a new idea is, “What does your research say?” I’m shocked at how few have good research in hand before launching major initiatives. I think research scares most people. However, we have found that research is revelatory and vital. Maybe debunking these six […]

“Behold! I Make All Things New”

Go with me back in time. It is 6:17 in the morning, April 6th, the 17th year of Tiberius Caesar. It is a few moments before sunrise. We are in a dark place, somewhere in Judea, a troubled province of the Roman Empire. There is a sudden movement of the earth beneath our feet. We […]

The World According To James

“Get yourself a stack of 3 X 5 cards, and come see me.” Dr. Wright was my favorite college professor, by far. We formed a friendship born in the classroom and developed at the baseball stadium, where I played and he cheered. While he taught and I ran the bases, somehow we became “equals.” So […]
