Making Connections

I have talked myself hoarse more times than I can count. I have been awake in the wee hours of the morning over and over and over. I have pulled all nighters despite no deadlines, and I have traveled enough distance to equate circling the earth many times over.

Sometimes friends and family tell me I’m […]

Counting the Omer

What does it mean?
By Michael Rood

Why I’m Thankful For The Carolina Panthers

In 2001, not long after recording Sodom and Gomorrah, I received a call on my cell phone as I was driving from Florida to Charlotte, North Carolina. The man on the phone had a deep, gruff voice. He invited me to come and stay at his house so that he could talk to me about […]

End-of-Year Giving Message From Michael

Without You… There’s Nothing.
They say there are two things certain in life: death and taxes. How’d you like to avoid both?

The first one is easy… live for the Kingdom. That means serving others with everything you’ve got, every day. It’s being a living example of the Torah, just like Yeshua did. I’ve said for a long time that we need […]
