Are you true?

Before I even start writing, I’m concerned that this post may come across as frustrated or angry. I’m truly not angry at anyone. But I am very concerned for many. You see as I write these words I’m thinking of many, many people that I love and care about and know personally. I am concerned […]

Facing-the-Reality-about-Spiritual-Warfare September 07

This Is War.

My friend Larry

I’ll be spending a lot of time today remembering Larry Lee Sherman. One year ago today, after spending the weekend coaching church planters, pastors and friends, he boarded a plane home, went to sleep and woke up in the presence of God. I received the phone call that he had died and it shocked me […]
