Gnash Less, Gaze More

When Stephen testified of Jesus to the Sanhedrin (the Jewish council of elders and priests), he was not aware of, or at least not paying attention to, their hostile, hardened responses. Having shown them that they were as stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and...

Under the Influence

The police officer politely but firmly asked me to step out of my car. It was late at night in 1977 and I was “driving under the influence” again. But this time, it wasn’t illegal stuff, just overdoses of the Holy Ghost! Singing songs to Jesus while driving home in my...

Invitation to a Party
