Now is the Time to Impact the Future of the ARP

  Every agency director in the ARP tells me it makes sense to have adequate financial resources in place to sustain current program operations and open new works within the ARPC.

Planned Giving for Millennials

My wife Heather, and I find ourselves in the generation of Millennials characterized by emotional giving because it’s trendy to give if emotions are in it, or by not-giving because they do not think they can afford it, or just not want to give at all.

Insight into the Sabbath Rest

The theme for the ARP denomination this year is “Fresh Insight from Ancient Paths.” The theme is based on Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus says the Lord, stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is. And walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls.” In […]

Gratitude and the Imprint of God

By Lee Shelnutt I have been asked to write on the role gratitude plays in our reflection of God’s imprint. As I do so, I am sitting in a local coffee shop with a large cup of this magic elixir we call coffee. I am looking out at the bustle of 21st century Americana alongside […]
