Going Deep with God #8: Pulling It All Together

I wrote in a previous post (post #6) how worship, our personal and individual worship centered on Him, must become a vital and essential part of our daily lives if we wish to go deep with God.  After reading my most recent post (post #7) that discussed practicing the presence of God as we go about our daily lives, do you see the connection between that and worship?  As you learn to practice......

What Do We Do Now?

I found it deeply disheartening last January when Joe Biden took office and moved into the White House.  America has fallen, once again, to the rule of those opposed to Christ, to those opposed to all that is good.  Most serious Christians are deeply disappointed in the outcome of the elections and in the man who now sits in the White House.  Since then it has been especially difficult to watch the President and the Democrats in Congress systematically destroy freedom in America, establish unrighteous laws and policies, and squander our taxes.  They seem to be especially zealous in their di
