Three Urgent Prayers for the 2020 Election

Through the Changing Face of How Churches Worship

As a whole, most of us do not like change and that also includes the church. But because of Covid-19, churches have had to change to adapt to this pandemic.

Through the use of technology (youtube, streaming, podcast, etc.), the church is now able to spread the message of Jesus Christ through technology to those outside of their congregation.

Now that we have realized that the use of modern technology can be used to provide church services, we need to consider how technology can also enhance our worship services.

There is no denying that our culture today is dominated by images in our everyday life. And like the old saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words”.

Don’t Let Doomsday Prophecies Fill You With Fear

I’ve lost count of the number of people who have asked for my opinion on Dana Coverstone, the pastor from Kentucky who released videos this year predicting destruction and chaos in the United States in 2020. I’ve listened to his messages. He seems like a friendly, humble guy who was surprised when the warnings he posted on YouTube went viral.
