The Right Dreams

Walt Disney. What a dreamer. He said: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” What is your dream? If you look at my life history, I think it’s obvious that God called me to be an eternal creative force in the world. To be honest, it hasn’t been […]

Are You A “Great Christian?”

American Idol Vs Foxe's Martyrs

I know, this is a hard one to answer. Most ministers would say “Why yes I am a Great Christian!” And then, upon request for the reason for their enthusiastic reply they might say “Because I’m a pastor!” or “I am a Christian author!” or “I have 30,000 Twitter followers” or “Because I have an […]

The Coach & The Player

This is not about a Disney animated feature film, just in case you wondered… Maybe it should be.

Now and Later – Part 2 of 4
