A Bully Pulpit Pastor for "Clergy Appreciation Month!"

jim-garlowI'm reading and enjoying immensely Doris Kearns Goodwin's book, "The Bully Pulpit:  Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism."  "Bully Pulpit" is a term coined by Theodore Roosevelt referring to the White House as a powerful platform to advocate an agenda.

And in this month of "Clergy Appreciation", I can't think of any pastor for whom the term "A Bully Pulpit pastor" fits better, and for whom we have any greater appreciation for, than Pastor Jim Garlow.  He's also heard daily on "The Garlow Perspective."

Jim's agenda is most assuredly biblio-centric ...

Why True Woman

Almost every day I hear about real-life challenges from women in my sphere of influence.  You might say that they are all living IN something, whether it's in love, in pain, in grief, or in trouble.  Each of us are searching for answers that bring relief to whatever circumstance we find ourselves in.  How many find those answers in Christ?

Next week, Revive Our Hearts will welcome a crowd of women (8,300 currently registered!) in Indianapolis for their much-anticipated True Woman '14 National Women's Conference with this year's theme: Finding Freedom, Fullness, and Fruitfulness in Christ ...

Trifecta Partnership

Trifecta Partnership"We are continually amazed by how God provides the resources we need to be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus Christ to many people in our community who do not know Him."

Could that statement have been said by you?  Perhaps you just met your station's sharathon goal.  Or a very large undesignated check came in the mail.  Maybe you got twice as many vendors to donate for your next event. 

Unexpected provision from surprising sources leave us amazed with how God provides.

"Partnership" is one way of how God provides -- and Reach Beyond knows that full well ...

Building a Biblical Worldview

One of the first times I heard the term "biblical worldview" was from Chuck Colson on BreakPoint® many years ago.  Now, I'm hearing it mentioned everywhere.  It seems that everyone is talking about worldview.  And, that's a good thing for a ministry like BreakPoint® who is providing cultural commentary while helping listeners understand why a Christian worldview matters.

So, what exactly is a biblical worldview?  John Stonestreet defines a worldview as "a framework of basic beliefs we have (whether we know it or not) that shapes our view of and for the world."  Christianity is a worldview and ...

A PK's Perspective on Clergy Appreciation Month

With BarryWe had the most marvelous time visiting Revival Outside the Walls a few weeks ago.  AAA got to take a fascinating tour of Barry Meguiar's recording studio, car display room, offices, and prayer room—where staff spend rejuvenating time with the Lord during the workday.


After the tour, we piled into the conference room for devotions.  Barry shared stories, stats, and scriptures.  The statistic that most caught my attention was:


81% of pastors have considered quitting in the last 12 months.


I was stunned to hear this!  As a pastor's kid, however, I can recall seasons in the ...
