  1. Steve:

    I have enjoyed your posts and your blog as a whole.

    I am curious how you balance preparation for Sunday morning and evening without giving short shrift to either (especially sunday pm). I have been in ministry seven years now and have yet to find a method or study plan that I have felt comfortable with long-term. In Bible College and in seminary only one method was presented to me and that is not always effective.

    I would like to know how you (and perhaps your readers) do it.

  2. God bless you so much for the powerful and anointed blog,am blessed to read it.amen and amen.kenya praying and trusting God to have you.stay blessed and let God use you more and more.
    yours pastor ken

  3. I went through your comment on Matthew 9:14-17; and had been empowered by knowledge and understanding of the scriptures. To God be the glory!!
