Solomon spared no expense to build the temple for the Lord yet he understoond that God wants our very lives to be pleasing to Him. Join Dawn and Steve Mornings for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International to remind us that like Solomon, we must thoroughly prepare ourselves so that God will choose to reveal his presence in our lives.
When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. 2 Chronicles 7:1
Moody author, Dr. Michael Hare, joins Dawn and Steve Mornings for a discussion on church conflict. Dr. Hare believes that church conflict can be an incredible opportunity. He has been helping churches recover (and even grow) from conflict for over 20 years. Dr. Hare's book When Church Conflict Happens is a helpful tool in understanding this issue.
Dr. S. Michael Hare never imagined a life looking for conflicts to resolve. Becoming a Christian at 19, he went to Bible college simply desiring to find out how to better serve God. However, following that path has led to over two decades of serving in the role of senior pastor in church turnaround ministries, 15 years of working as a church conflict consultant, and recently completing a PhD in Conflict Analysis and Resolution. Dr. Hare also serves as a senior staff chaplain and ombudsman for Compassion with its nearly 4,000 employees ministering in 26 third world countries. He has served as an adjunct instructor in several universities and is currently teaching mediation courses in a doctoral program in Denver. Michael and his wife Colleen live in Colorado Springs, CO and have four children and six grandchildren who live in Africa, Germany, and the US.
Listen during the third hour as Dawn and Steve share an encouraging story based on an article by Michael Foust titled "Skillet's John Cooper Was Promised Fame if He Stopped 'Talking about Jesus' - It was a 'Turning Point in My Career.'"
