Holly Day or Holy Day?

Morning Thought: Holiday is made up of two words: holy and day. However, the holiness of this time is often replaced by a flurry of market activity. The day soon becomes more about ‘us’, or at worst ‘me’, and not about Him. It reminds me of what the Passover had become in Jesus’ day. “To those who sold doves he [Jesus] said, ‘Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” (John 2:16). This year let’s stop and put the holy back into the day.

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
