    A Man and His Identity

    If you were asked to identify yourself in one word, what would it be? Parent? Spouse? American? If you’ve accepted Christ as your Savior, then that one word should be "Christian." The late E.V. Hill, then-pastor of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, preached a powerful sermon at a 1992 Promise Keepers event in Boulder, Colorado. In it, he reminds us of the truth of 1 Peter 2:9 which says, "We are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession." In other words, our identity is in Jesus Christ.

    When Sorry Isn’t Enough: Apology+Forgiveness - Part 2

    A key component of a healthy marriage is the ability to humbly apologize. Unfortunately, few of us are very good at that. Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The Five Languages of Apology, asked thousands of people, "When someone is apologizing to you, what do you want to hear them say or do?"

    As an impressionable boy, Danny Silk witnessed his mother consecutively invite at least 30 men to live with them. Her poor example contributed to a crisis of confidence in his eventual marriage, as he came to believe that love and fear equally inhabit all relationships—but he learned one ultimately casts out the other.

    Keep Your Love On - Part 1

    Raised by a passive single mom, Danny Silk learned to be passive as a young adult.

    Rescuing Fatherless Boys - Part 2

    Rescuing Fatherless Boys - Part 2

    For young children, love is spelled "T-I-M-E," so without a father in the home it can be traumatic. John Smithbaker, founder of "Fathers in the Field," experienced the forgiveness of Christ at the age of 40, and was empowered to forgive his earthly father for abandoning him as a child. His Christ-centered mentoring ministry urges the Church to play a role much like the Good Samaritan—instead of walking by fatherless boys left on the "cultural roadside," to find willing Christian men to invest time in their lives.
