The Uselessness of a Platform

The Uselessness of a Platform

It’s interesting that everyone talks about how a platform with access to so many people is a wonderful way for the gospel to connect to people.

One Decision to Rule Them

I was listening to an American pastor talk about how a decision he made with the leaders of the church, in the wake of COVID19, to not resume for services till the end of the year.

The church is on the top 5 largest churches in the USA by attendance records so it’s a huge thing. Well, not all the church members took it well. A couple of them left voicemail or emails that they were leaving the church.
