“Churches need to operate their own bookstores to provide sound material to the people,” David Cloud, a Fundamentalist Baptist, argued. “The typical Christian bookstores are not going to carry the type of information that God’s people need today, because they are in the business of making money and do not want to offend potential customers”
We all have a ministry from God. In fact, you’re in full-time ministry right now. So…how are you doing? What are you doing? Who are you reaching? One of the things I try to emphasize at church is that everyone should be self-consciously serving God in their lives. Not everyone has a visible ministry on Sunday mornings.
I’m interested in just about everything. There are several languages I want to learn really well—Modern Greek, Koine, Hebrew, Afrikaans, German, Swedish, and Spanish for starters. There are many instruments I’d love to learn to play well—the marimba, piano, ukulele, trumpet, and the Hammond B3 organ. I want to become a better painter and illustrator.
