Prophetic Dream: To Whom Are You Accountable?

Last week, in the midst of dealing with a national leadership dispute in which the issue of a “lack of accountability” was front and center, I had a dream. Actually, it was more of a picture, but I was asleep. In it, I saw a major leader in the body of Messiah. This person has… Read more »

Youth in Search of Identity

It hit me while worshiping with some 70 youth from all over Israel, at the conclusion of this summer’s Katzir-Harvest teen conference: Identity. We all want to know who we are.
