Ride On…Q&A with Joseph Fehlen (Part 1)

I have one brother. I call him Joe. But now that he’s kind of a big deal author, he likes to be called “Joseph.” I refuse. Joe currently is the associate pastor at Grace Foursquare Church in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Recently Joe wrote a book called “Ride On: A Motorcycle Journey to Awake your Soul and […]

Jesus Did It. Shouldn’t We?

“At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place…” Luke 4:42 “Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” Luke 5:16 “One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.” Luke 6:12 Jesus knew how to take timely breaks to replenish his soul.

Without question, my trip home to Salem is much better than the trip down to California. Not only did I have to blaze […]
