All through my Christian life I've heard this term “The Good Old Gospel Ship.” It was used as a song, a skit in Sunday School and my personal favorite, a term to describe the church. This... More > “Good Old Gospel Ship” has been sailing for a LONG time and it became evident to me last year while speaking at Cornerstone Festival (a former hard rock Christian music festival) that many of these “ships” are stuck on a one-way course. It is as if the steering wheel is broken and the captain has lost interest and is simply sailing. In talking with this group, I've discovered there is a cadre of people that want to see change and simply do not know how to turn this ship around. It is my desire to see more and more churches “get it” and begin to make the necessary changes.< Less

Two absolute strangers, Andoni a young Spaniard and Howard an aging American join forces to cross the Atlantic on a 34-foot sloop. All they have in common is love of the sea. Language, customs,... More > habits, traditions and ethics all influence the final understanding of what may be a request, an instruction or an order. Determining the difference between them depends on the context, the circumstances and who is on either end of the communications link. When is it correct for a crewmember to disobey an order from his Skipper? How far does the Captain's authority reach and who is ultimately responsible if blind obedience to an order that is poorly phrased, incomplete or just plain wrong were to place the ship in danger? The mutiny aboard the USS Caine is fiction but what happened aboard HMS Bounty is sadly true. How this ocean passage began, what occurred during the 46 days at sea and how it ends makes for an interesting tale.< Less

Novel by Mrs. Hugh Fraser. Author of "A Diplomatist's Wife in Japan," "Little Grey Sheep," &c. Excerpt: "THERE is no use in saying anything more. I have quite made up... More > my mind about it." When a woman says this, it means that she is prepared to discuss the matter from a liberal point of view and at great length; but it takes two to carry on a discussion, and this woman was alone, tiresomely and unjustly alone, she would have said, for the person who should have been her companion on this March evening had gone off, in the most disloyal way, to dine with her intimate enemy. Reprisals appeared to be imminent. Marna had hesitated about employing such weapons before, because she did not wish to take the edge off them too soon in the combat. But now the time had come. So she finished her coffee and set the cup down quite sternly; then she walked across to her writing-table as if she were going to take command of a battery of artillery.< Less
