Posted on April 9, 2013 | By Rob Collins

Day After the Storm

Posted on March 3, 2012 | By Rob Collins

Everyone working hard to remove debris, cut fallen trees, and clean up trash. I believe that God is with us during the storm and that God smiles big watching God’s people respond with […]

Preaching in a Onesy?

Posted on September 7, 2010 | By Rob Collins

David Platt, in his new book Radical, points out a dilemma that he faced when becoming the Pastor of a megachurch. He says that his model for ministry is Jesus, who is really more like the Pastor of a minichurch! I understand this dilemma that David faces; I still struggle with it every day. I suppose that all […]

Grump-a-lump Solomon

Posted on November 11, 2009 | By Rob Collins

“Somebody has a case of the muuunnnn-days” I decided to complete the homework assignment that Robby gave on Sunday morning, even against my lazy instincts. Read the book of Ecclesiastes he said. Well that’s exactly what I did last night. Meaningless reading, I say! Meaningless ideas, and meaningless preaching lead to meaningless meaninglessness! What does […]
