On Nov. 18, 1978, more than 900 Americans died in Jonestown, Guyana. Some committed suicide. More were murdered. And until 9/11, it was the largest single mass killing of American citizens. U.S. Rep. Leo Ryan was assassinated as he tried to rescue Jonestown residents desperate for freedom. In CQ Roll Call's new podcast, we investigate Jonestown through the prism of congressional oversight, telling a story of corruption, international intrigue, race and betrayal. Oversight. How can the lesson ...

This episode is going to be a little different from past episodes in that I have some advice to share with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The advice comes from several assembly doctors who are paying close attention to the spread of this disease and have made recommendations specifically for assembly gatherings. The Recommendations, Verbatim I a…
 
In the waning months of Jonestown, the only primary American officials in touch with the Rev*.* Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple were U.S. diplomats at the tiny embassy in Georgetown, Guyana. We tell you about a 6-year-old boy who became central to Jones and to the existence of the commune, a flirtation with the KGB and the Soviet Union and prepara…
 
Oversight: Jonestown takes a step back to the mid-1970s, a time of tumult, to explain how the Rev. Jim Jones went from Midwest preacher to messiah to maniac. It's the story of how he became a master of exploitation. He used the Black Power movement against the African-American community, politicians' own votes against them — and abuse and coercion …
 
In this first episode of Oversight: Jonestown, we take you deep into the Guyanese jungle, behind the harrowing scenes of the last 24 hours of the Peoples Temple Agricultural Collective. We have new information and a new understanding of how one man — the Rev. Jim Jones — orchestrated the deaths of 917 people, including Congressman Leo Ryan. For mor…
 
The debate between casual wear and formal wear is a sensitive topic in some regions and a non-issue in others. I will be upfront with you about my agenda: I’d like to see the clothing issue taken off the table so we can focus on shepherding hearts. I believe there’s more heat than light being created around this issue. My goal today is to come alon…
 
When I issued the overseer survey in late 2017, the third-highest concern from overseers was that they felt they were far too busy and did not have enough time to shepherd God’s flock. In this article, I do not intend to criticize or add to the guilt surrounding this issue but rather would like to help each of us understand how we get so overloaded…
 
Have you ever found people’s emotions just a little too overwhelming? Or maybe you’re shepherding someone and talking about an issue and then they get really emotional and you’re not sure how to handle it? Emotions are a window into people’s hearts. So if in your work as an elder in a local church you want to help people to grow in the Lord and mat…
 
This article is a sequel on divorce and remarriage as it relates to adultery. The goal of addressing these matters is not to promote divorce and remarriage — in a few moments we’ll talk about how God intends recovery and reconciliation to be a priority — but to note that in some extreme situations that may impact a marriage God does extend His merc…
 
In Gospel Hall assemblies I think we have a pretty solid grasp on soul winning. The word “Gospel” is right on most of our buildings and we generally are pretty keen on seeing souls saved. But what happens after you win the soul? Well, we often fall flat when it comes to soul healing, despite the fact that this too is one of the provisions of the cr…
 
Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loveth at all times…” (KJV). The problem is, most of us do not have friends like that — especially if we exclude our wife from the count of close friends. This is one of my longer posts but I feel the subject matter is especially important. I want to tell you why loneliness is such a problem and also report on a surve…
 
I have been working with porn addicts for a decade now. I am embarrassed to admit that one thing that took me several years to catch onto was the incredibly devastating effect that pornography has on spouses. Well, I knew it was devastating, but I did not know what to do about that. I just thought if I could help the addict stop then the spouse wou…
 
Vulnerability and authenticity. These are buzzwords of modern culture. But do they actually have any place in God’s assembly? How about in our lives as overseers? As it turns out, these are much more than just modern buzzwords. Allow me to explain the concepts behind these two terms before making a case for integrating them into your service as an …
 
There are things that you or I may take for granted as adults in healthy marriages. Fundamentals of trust, vulnerability, respect, mutuality: the things that make up healthy intimacy. For the recovering porn addict, he or she may not really know what healthy intimacy even looks like. So we need to be prepared to educate them about this. The Need fo…
