Screwtape on Easter (2013)

It was from the imagination of C.S. Lewis that we were first exposed to a devil’s diabolical advice for the capturing of the human heart through the fictional correspondence between a senior devil, Screwtape, to his nephew, Wormwood.

Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight

The Shepherd-Rancher Divide

Every church longs to grow. That’s the way it should be. "The Great Commission" was not "The Small Suggestion." So what is keeping many of these churches from reaching their full potential?
