What happens when we truly put God first in all aspects of our lives? In a culture guided chiefly by shiny, life-promising distractions, enough seems elusive and keeps us indebted to that next source of satisfaction. What if the Giver of Life offered freedom from this downward spiralwould you take it? In shiny gods, pastor and author Mike Slaughter, lead pastor of Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church and popular author of Christmas Is Not Your Birthday, helps readers reassess priorities and create a culture and a lifestyle of giving with a special emphasis on missions.
Mike Slaughter is the lead pastor at Ginghamsburg Church. Under his leadership, Ginghamsburg Church has become known as an early innovator of small group ministry, the Church "media reformation," and cyber-ministry.
