Happy Thanksgiving! 7 Things I’m Thankful For

Over two weeks ago, I was at the mall with my family when we rounded a corner to see Santa and his workshop already set up. Christmas music was already playing along with all the commercialism that comes with buying gifts today. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE CHRISTMAS, but it seems like everyone is forgetting about the very important holiday of Thanksgiving. So, today please don’t forget about all the blessings you have and people you are thankful for. Don’t get wrapped up in shopping the next few days on Black Friday or Cyber Monday without first being thankful.

Episode 5 : Karl Roberts on Personal Evangelism

Pastor Karl Roberts is one of the men who inspired me to become a pastor. He loves the Lord deeply, and if you are around him you will know it by him sharing his savior with those around him. My parents, over 25 years ago, started going to the church pastor Karl was ministering to, and after over 40 years of ministry he is still serving Jesus any way he can. He brings great insights on how you can personally share Jesus with others.
