Unity Between The Old And The Young

Wednesday’s Column: Third’s Words Gary Pollard An engine needs three things to run: fuel, spark, and air (compression). Engines have come a very long way since their initial designs and unless you’re driving an e-car, these items still have to be in place and tuned properly. I’m partial to older engines simply because they’re easyContinue reading “Unity Between The Old And The Young”

You Push That Way And I’ll Pull This Way

Neal Pollard While it is true that each of us possesses unique abilities within the Lord’s body (Rom. 12; 1 Cor. 12), that fact bears closer scrutiny.

Sharing Trade Secrets Or Sharing The Wealth?

Neal Pollard Last month, Von Miller gathered some of the NFL’s elite sack specialists at Stanford University for what he called a “pass rush summit.” The participates were star defensive players from around the league, with several different teams represented.

You may have union, but you do not have unity.”  Recently, political pundits have been makingContinue reading “The Difference Between Unity And Union”

What “We” Do To Achieve Spiritual Success

Neal Pollard It is an unmistakable emphasis in the book of Nehemiah. The word “we” appears 38 times in 30 of the book’s 406 verses! Working together was the continuous mindset of Judah. They knew such a mentality would ensure success (2:20). Teamwork accomplishes much more than individual performance! If a ball team has onlyContinue reading “What “We” Do To Achieve Spiritual Success”

Church Cooperation

Neal Pollard I have become more acutely aware of the importance of “church cooperation” working with a congregation that operates a school of preaching.  To get every student here and to support every teacher who prepares them for ministry, several congregations and individuals must give to make this a reality.  Those who contribute range fromContinue reading “Church Cooperation”
