It's a Blog Party!

I'm really excited about the new and improved Assembly of God blog ring under the leadership of it's founder, Sharon Snavely. What a great job she is doing of uniting people on the web. I'm so proud of her for all the hard work she has done on this landmark project.

To celebrate all God is doing through the new update, Sharon is throwing a blog party and several bloggers including yours truly are giving away door prizes!

Please check it out here.

Also if you are a blogger and you are affiliated with the Assemblies of God, I greatly encourage you to join not only the blog party, but the blog ring!

Hey PD is this something I can do also or is it just for ministers?
Not sure what your question is...

1) If it is can you participate in the blog party by signing up? Yes, anyone put their name in to receive a prize.

2) To give a prize? I am not sure you can write to Sharon and ask her by going to her blog page. I think you can.

3) Those on the blog ring just need to be affiliated with the AG. I believe you qualify for you that since you are a member of an AG church. You do not have to be a pastor, just be affiliated somehow. You would probably be under "individual" or "Mom" blogs as far as categories on the AG blog page.

Just go to the blog ring and sign up. You can join by going to the bottom right hand corner of my blog page...go down to where it says AG blog ring and join and click join.

I am sure Sharon will answer anything for you as well if you have further questions, just click on her screen name above.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
