So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore: An Unexpected Journey

So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore: An Unexpected Journey

Jake Colsen, an overworked and disillusioned pastor, happens into a stranger who bears an uncanny resemblance (in manner) to the apostle John. A number of encounters with John as well as a family crisis lead Jake to a new understanding of what his life should be like: one filled with faith bolstered by a steady, close relationship with the God of the universe. Facing his own disappointment with Christianity, Jake must forsake the habits that have made his faith rote and rediscover the love that captured his heart when he first believed.

Compelling and intensely personal, SO YOU DON’T WANT TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE relates a man’s rebirth from performance-based Christianity to a loving friendship with Christ that affects all he does, thinks, and says. As John tells Jake, “There is nothing the Father desires for you more than that you fall squarely in the lap of his love and never move from that place for the rest of your life.”Jake Colsen, an overworked and disillusioned pastor, happens into a stranger who bears an uncanny resemblance (in manner) to the apostle John.

John 2[10]  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

It is interesting to observe how the ways of God are at variance with the common ways of mankind…In this text, Jesus performs a miracle which causes a bad situation to become a good one…and this is in contrast to what the world generally does which is to begin well and progressively decay. In my study of wealth, as documented in my book “Wealth out of Ashes”   http://www.authorhouse.com/Bookstore/ItemDetail.aspx?bookid=63927 ,

I have found that the principle of decay had led to principles of scarcity, depreciation, fear and in a depression a panic resulting in loss.  The world and its clever ways leads us into a downward spiral …albeit eventually.

God’s work through His Son- Jesus Christ is the direct opposite…He starts where the wrold despairs. Depression is His best arena, trouble is His best canvas to produce beauty…darkness is the best scenario to show off His stars.  All you need to do in this time of recession is to be more attentive to Him and sooner you will conceive and birth revolutionary ideas and innovation that cannot be explained. Just like Mary’s baby.

We should be at our best in crisis and be more alert to respond to situations…our times of prayer are times to listen and hearken to the still small voice…going where no one dared to go and finding what no one expected…expecting the impossible and believing the unfathomable unlocking new discoveries and demonstrating new knowledge and possibilities.

Child of God – quit moaning and complaining, there will be an account for the stewardship of the “mind of Christ” given to us…this same mind created entire galaxies out of nothing…what have you done with it…darkness did not stop creation…why has your creativity been halted by obstacles?

Christianity demands profit from you…do not be an idler…the world is rich in excuses for failing. Failure is inexcusable for the Christian given His boundless resources.

 Matthew 25[30]  And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The worst is not what depression can do to you…for this is only a new beginning of fresh possibilities.  The worst, ultimately, is the result of doing nothing for fear, discouragement and despair…listening to the mind of men.

Therefore I pray the Holy Spirit will stir up the hope that is in you…you are not a hopeless case…on the contrary you could be the next star the world is waiting to celebrate. Perhaps a new business idea/concept is in your womb…Happy delivery..

Unfulfilled at You J.o.b? Unleash the Entrepreneur in You

My mentor always says, “what you do for yourself makes you successful but what you do for others makes you significant!” Are you still working at the same job hoping things turn around for you someday? Still hoping business picks up again like it once was years ago? Still on the JOB boards and newspapers looking for that next new exciting company that will finally pay you want you are worth? Or maybe you’ll even settle for just a little more money than you’re making now.

Stained Glass ? Journey Through History

Stained Glass ? Journey Through History

Stained glass is an intricate art form dating back before recorded history. Today, we are quite familiar with the colorful biblical scenes and symbols depicted in stained glass windows incorporated into the aesthetic arrangement of many churches and cathedrals. It is believed that a rise in the use of stained glass aligned with an era when widespread church building took place, sometime around the tenth century.

A surge in stained glass popularity accompanied the Gothic age, alongside the construction of Europe’s great cathedrals. Stained glass windows portraying naturally illuminated, intensely colored images not only fashioned an artistic, visually rich atmosphere, but introduced a means of conveying biblical tales to the widely illiterate audience of the time. The depiction of God in stained glass was thought to bestow a spiritual experience rather than a mere interpretation of a story.

With the creation of new coloring methods and artistry, stained glass became an art form more similar to artistic painting in the 15th century. Focus shifted to emphasize the visual image rather than the atmosphere created, and stained glass craftsmen instead became glass painters. The Renaissance marked a time period when the grandeur of stained glass seemed to be crawling toward obsolescence, with designs becoming simpler illustrations on transparent backgrounds. Stained glass became common in homes, churches and other public buildings in plainer form. Stained glass windows even began to be removed from churches and destroyed.

The diminishing interest and phasing out of stained glass was short lived, with England showing a revived interest in Gothic architecture in the 1800s. Artists revisited and unfolded the stained glass techniques of the past, and soon the first stained glass studios were established in America by English immigrants.

Two American painters, John LaFarge and Louis Comfort Tiffany, separately became interested in the art of stained glass. The two men soon became competitors, with LaFarge copywriting opalescent glass and Tiffany becoming the frontrunner in its popularity. More advanced techniques were established, such as layering glass to depict depth and utilizing copper instead of lead to enable the creation of more detailed images.

Exploiting the emergence of electric lighting, Tiffany began adapting his technique to produce intricate lamp shades to be used in the homes of the wealthy. After the deaths of LaFarge in 1910 and Tiffany in 1933, stained glass suffered decreased popularity in the United States, aside from common use in church windows.

Stained glass art has seen a recent surge in popularity in the United States, being incorporated into the décor of new homes, church windows and lampshades reminiscent of those created by Louis Comfort Tiffany many years before.

Race and the Assemblies of God Church: The Journey from Azusa Street to the “Miracle of Memphis”

Race and the Assemblies of God Church: The Journey from Azusa Street to the “Miracle of Memphis”

Race and the Assemblies of God Church chronicles the treatment of African Americans by the largest, predominantly white, Pentecostal denomination in the United States. The formation of the Assemblies of God in 1914, brought an end to the interracial focus of the Pentecostal movement that characterized the revival from its inception in Los Angeles, California, at an abandoned warehouse on Azusa Street in 1906. Dr. Newman utilizes the extensive archival holdings of the Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center, housed in the international headquarters of the Assemblies of God in Springfield, Missouri, to support his contention that Assemblies of God leaders deliberately engaged in racist efforts to prevent African American participation in Assemblies of God activities because the denominational leaders feared the reaction of its ministers and congregations in the American South. In addition, a concerted effort to refer African Americans interested in the Assemblies of God to African American groups, such as the Church of God in Christ, was approved at the highest levels of Assemblies of God leadership. Ultimately, efforts to exclude African Americans from the denomination led to official decisions to refuse them ordination and approved resolutions to support the establishment of a separate, unrelated Pentecostal denomination specifically for African Americans. Assemblies of God attitudes regarding racial issues changed only as a result of the civil rights movement and its effect upon American society during the 1960s and 1970s. The treatment of race in church groups with European origins was compared to that of the Assemblies of God and the influence of African and slave religions upon the rise of the Pentecostal movement. Finally, the author provides an analysis of the 1994 event known as the “Miracle of Memphis” in which white Pentecostal denominations dissolved the racially segregated Pentecostal Fellowship of North America in favor of a new organization, the Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches of North America. The book concludes that although current Assemblies of God leaders have embraced the concept of an integrated church fellowship that no longer excludes African Americans, there is virtually no evidence of wide acceptance of this concept at the local church level in the denomination.
