FORGIVE & LIVE FEARLESSLY: A Conversation with Dr. Joan Samuels-Dennis PH.D

In this edition of summer preview season, I talk with Dr. Joan Samuels-Dennis PH.D. She is the director and founder of Becoming Inc. She practices and teaches a "holistic style" of forgiveness that has helped many overcome mental and physical health problems. She believes Forgiveness allows us to know our truth, speak our truth, and know when others are speaking truth. She lives and operates in Canada.

Sentiments of My Masculinity

The rapid perplexity in what defines a man has consumed this world with numerous and conflicting perspectives. The grieving thing about this ideal of “morality”, is that it shifts as often as the sun sets. Different races, cultures, nationalities, etc... all war over what’s acceptable for men to wear, say, do. What we don’t realize, is that the force in the drivers’ seat of our world’s principles is intentional about advertising the instability we see today. 

JOHN MEETS DON: A Crisis of Christianity and Political Culture

As should be obvious the Lord's answer was "yes". The response by many in the Christian community presents a shocking reality, one that personally saddens me. As we have crucified the seemingly widely beloved pastor John Gray and others we have indirectly suggested that engaging in conversation (meaningful and with reformative motives) is something that is synonymous with compromise and this, quite frankly, is a false view. 

DATING WITH CHILDREN

The traditional family is beginning to become extinct. The high rate of single mothers, fatherless children and divorces has risen to an all time high. A traditional family is ideal but highly unlikely. It’s very rare to find a man/woman who does not have children already!

A Talentless Christ

Many churches may not know how to train some talents and gifts, but that’s what we serve an almighty God for. To whom much is given, much is required. We cannot afford to sit on the gifts and talents that God has given us just because it doesn’t look traditional. There are gifts of influence, management, and administration amongst many others.
