Don’t Be a Jerk! Be a Neighbor!

These aren’t exactly ’neighborly’ times. Or are they? There is a ‘kill or be killed’ mentality that needs…to be killed. Most of us can give examples of people being bad neighbors. We’ve all heard the stories about people buying huge amounts of necessities (like toilet paper and sanitizer) and then trying to sell these products…

Hands Up!

Confession time. If we’re being really honest, it was all I could do to not roll my eyes and look away. I used to be really uncomfortable with people reaching out or lifting up hands to God during corporate worship.  Culture, tradition, worship style, whatever you want to call it, I almost cringed.  I thought…
