Tweet     The title for this post comes from what I find to be one of the most humorous yet promising statements in all of scripture.  I ripped it off from Peter.  It was statement he made in John 21:3 (King James Version).  Peter made the declaration after a visit from Jesus…after He (Jesus) [...]

Just Do It

By   /  June 23, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Tweet     My cheesy and ripped-off title comes from a thought I had while reading in the book of Numbers. “Eleazar son of Aaron the priest will be responsible for the oil of the lampstand, the fragrant incense, the daily grain offering, and the anointing oil. In fact, Eleazar will be responsible for the [...]

Doing things at your convenience

By   /  June 16, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Tweet       This is what I call my number one leadership principle.  To being with, let’s first make certain that we understand one another.  By leadership I mean, “A person of influence.”  The leader may be of his own making – a business owner for example.  Or, a leader might have been hired into a position [...]

Faith Misunderstood

By   /  June 9, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Tweet     On Wednesday nights we have been studying through the book of James.  We are just now getting to the place in chapter 2 where James speaks of a demonstrative faith.  From the beginning of his letter, James has encouraged the people to act in a matter that is portrayal of the Kingdom [...]

Give us a King!

Doug Rea

Tweet     This is essentially what I hear from the Christian community when the presidential elections are the topic of discussion. Its either, “Give us Mitt! He will free us to prosper,” or “Give Obama 4 more years to fix it.” I understand both of these when taking a purely “natural” look at the [...]

Doug Rea

Tweet     Meet Aaron - the brother of Moses. Here’s the guy who is about to be anointed High Priest of Israel.  Aaron was God’s choice for the highest ranking, spiritual official in all the land. I could give you more of a background for this first bible verse – but I won’t have too. You [...]

What if I’ve Blown It?

By   /  April 28, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Doug Rea

Tweet     Sometimes we just “blow” it.  There’s the  car you shouldn’t have purchased or the job you should have taken.  Perhaps for you its a relation that ended before its time, or an error in judgment that cost you dearly. We all have those, “What was I thinking,” events that have tripped us [...]

Tweet     I had lunch last week with some pastor friends in the area. After the meal we got on the subject of ministry. As we shared the happenings at our individual churches I challenged them with the title of this edition of, “With your Latte.”  I told them that, in my opinion, there [...]

Boldness

By   /  April 16, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Doug Rea

Tweet     As I continue to write about David and Goliath, His boldness to face the giant cannot be ignored. Dictionary.com defines boldness as, “not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff.”  David’s willingness to face-off against Goliath certainly fits that designation. For us – this is 21st century America. What giants, persecution, or difficult circumstances do [...]

Goliath had Kin Folks

By   /  April 8, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Doug Rea

Tweet     A new giant is now defying my accomplishments. His name is, “Success.” I stopped counting calories since I have lost the 50+ pounds I desired.  The running schedule fell at the feat of “I’ve completed a half marathon” so I can now run at will – assuming I run at all.  I [...]
