    "Do what you're good at for the glory of God somewhere strategic for the mission of God"   Heard/Stolen from JD Greer Summit Church, North Carolina.  


    Heard/Stolen from Pastor Vic at Watkinsville Baptist Church, Athens, GA 8/16/15


    This quote so dramatically captivated me so immediately and so powerfully that I wrote a message in minutes...  This is that message given LIVE for you and your friends


    I wrote a book called "Excellence Killed th Church, How Mediocrity is Destroying America!"  In that book I talk extensively about the ruin of America at the hands mediocrity, and you know what?  That is in the Bible!  


    This will be fun!  Tell your friends!  


    Also, as many of you have asked, I will give you the latest update on my buddy Chris Cahalan and his inspiring journey of incredible faith despite daunting challenges.
