How to Leave Your Church Well

Changing churches is never easy. For those who are very connected through volunteering, children's ministry, and other aspects of church community, change is rarely sought after. Many people feel called away from their current church for a number of different reasons.

What leads up to this point is perhaps, a can of worms to be opened. ...

5 Reasons You Should Take Your Bible to Church

Several years ago I posted a “tongue in cheek” article about NOT bringing your Bible to church. A number of readers missed the humor in it completely.

From babies to grandparents, there are many ways to get together. ...
