From the Archives: Knowing God Personally

By Ronald J. Fowler

So much of human existence is filled with indirect relationships. There is a certain distance people maintain either for good or bad reasons. However, the fact remains that many people prefer the pain of distance to the fulfilment of fellowship. Too many people are more thing-oriented than people-oriented.

Now he’s excited to announce he’s donning one more—as he joins the staff, part-time, of Servant Solutions. Continue reading
