The Jews of first-century Israel labored under a man-made burden of religosity, an endless list of rules that goverened virtually every aspect of life - and all of them based upon laws handed down by God, but twisted and inflated to serve the desire of one group of people to dominate another.
Jesus said, "Take MY yoke upon you and learn of ME."
This is my personal blog. I write about making disciples, the local church, the church I pastor, and other related topics. These entries are usually directed to the congregation I lead, hopefully exerting some measure of influence on them, as well as including them with information about the state of our church. In many ways, this is my second pulpit. My blog also includes personal information about myself and family – usually very transparent, and sometimes humorous. Hope you enjoy.
