Emotional Health

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28).

Singles

A good friend recently challenged me concerning the way we (Watermark staff and I) think about weddings. Often pastors/churches don’t love to officiate weddings because of the time they take away from family, the increasing extravagance of wedding days, and a hesitation of not wanting responsibility for marrying a couple.

In the process, we miss out on an incredible opportunity of preparing couples for marriage and a home run opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. As a result, we want to improve in the way we talk about the wedding day and celebrate the wedding, not just the marriage preparation.

Both of my daughters are now at an age where they are starting to consider their careers in earnest, and as a result, I’ve been fielding lots of practical questions lately about the job application and interview process. This week I thought I’d share some of that advice for those of you who are also on the job hunt. Please feel free to chime in and add your own tips and advice in the comments section!

First Impressions.
