The Conduits and Flow of the Holy Spirit in Our Lives: Becoming Agents of Change in Our Cities

Nothing happened. I banged on the sides of the vacuum trying to get the infernal contraption to start working. But no matter how many times I clicked the start switch and checked the underside of the spinning and vacuuming turbines, nothing happened. Eventually I realized that the plug was not in the electrical socket. The appliance that I was trying to clean things up with and get work done would never do its’ job if no power was flowing through... Read More

It’s Not the Late-Night Pizza You Ate: Dreams and How God Speaks Through Them
