Pastor's corner: Misplaced sense of urgency

Urgency - requiring immediate attention - I recently shared with our family at Bethesda Church that I believe there is a real need for a renewed sense of urgency in the body of Christ. During this past month, I have traveled nearly 5,000 miles. I have had numerous opportunities to observe, communicate with and worship with other Christians. I have talked with pastors and other Christian leaders about where the body of Christ at large is during this span of time.

Live life with a pure heart

We live in a world that is fueled by agendas. Man, by nature, tends to look out for himself. Occasionally, (it is one of the rarest occurrences) you come across a person who's only true agenda is the success and betterment of those to whom he or she is related.
