The Harness of the Lord (Prophetic Leadership for 21st Century)

I remember receiving this word through brother Tom Bailey many MANY years ago while attending a house meeting in Crozet, Virginia.

5 Reasons why Fellowship with Others eludes us by Chip Brogden

If everyone is looking for fellowship, why is fellowship so hard to find?  And once we have found it, why is it so hard to maintain it? When God begins to bring you out of church and into a deeper relationship with Himself, there is a lot of unlearning that has to take place – particularly in the area of fellowship. It has been said that every lost person has a Christ-shaped void in their heart that only Christ can fill.  A similar...
