Side by Side – Day 30 “Why?”

Gregory Wasinski Featured, Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

This big buzz word in business development right now is “Why.” Organizations are reminded that people have to understand why you are in the business you are in and what makes you different than everyone else. In consulting I especially remind ministry leaders to make sure your ministry is not about what you want, instead make sure it is about …

Side by Side – Day 29 “Abba”

Gregory Wasinski Featured, Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

I believe that there are certain words we use that call us into a deeper level of spirituality. One of those words is the name Jesus utters for His father in heaven, “Abba.” Author Brennan Manning wrote, “My identity as Abba’s child is not an abstraction or a tap dance into religiosity.

Gregory Wasinski Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

I was convinced I was going to die young. I am still young so I hope that is not true physically, but it has already happened spiritually. God knew me before I was born and in the time I pushed aside His love for a worldly life, He taught me to die to myself so I could let Him increase …

Our words can often get us into trouble, not because we say bad things, but because we keep talking when we should be listening. God asks us to simply listen for His voice… …

Gregory Wasinski Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

I spent a lot of my early years being told what I should believe. I have to say, it wasn’t fair that people allowed me to think that is how a relationship with our Lord works. You must make an effort in your day to live in His word. It fills you in ways with grace that you cannot even …

Side by Side – Day 20 “Blessed Mother”

Gregory Wasinski Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

Some denominations of Christianity hold a very negative view of the Catholic recognition of Mary as the mother of God (Christ in His humanness). I don’t understand that. Mary was the first disciple, the first one to answer the call to follow Christ by her “Yes” to bring Him into the world. She was also the ultimate mother. Doesn’t every …
