Love Speaks: Blog from Alan Langstaff

“Many years ago I realized that one of the most important skills a leader must develop is the ability to hear the voice of the Lord. If you are not hearing God’s voice, how can you lead the people who will be following you? Since all of us (at least the majority of us) are […]

Lifted Up on the Rock of the Word

The Bible, the Word of God, is our only infallible source of hearing the voice of God, wouldn’t you agree? With our culture of “information overload,” it’s sometimes good to get back to the basics.

Easy, right? Obviously, God must have had a lot of unheard messages on […]
