Who’s Your Boss?

Posted by Calton Chu on

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23 Monday morning to Friday evening is usually a period where we like to fast-forward because of what is sandwiched in between: our jobs. For many of us, our job is associated...

Posted by Kyle Reed on

As a pastor, it is always easier to give people advice than it is to receive advice – especially if that advice is not what I want to hear. Recently, I knew what advice needed to be given to me but I had some stubbornness in my heart to fully trust God, and I didn’t...
