The Hungry and Insatiable Leviathan

November 4, 2022

C.S. Lewis is ageless. He died 60 years ago but you would never know it by reading him. I was reminded of that this past weekend at our “Slaying Leviathan” Conference.

Time for Jenny

October 29, 2021

My disgust has gone from simmering to boiling the past few months. I am referring to our civil overlords who believe their role and title is Over Lord. Some believe they suffer from narcissism. That may be. But I believe the better diagnosis is demi-god. Their arrogance, hubris, and condescending self-importance busted the scale months […]

We are watching a culture in freefall because its […]

Pastor Rich will continue his series on “Some Choruses, a Pep-talk, and an Offering” after Christmas. David Martyn Lloyd-Jones (December 20, 1899 – March 1, 1981) was a Welsh pastor who was for almost 30 years the minister of Westminster Chapel in London and was well known for his expository preaching (sermons can be found […]
