Work to Build, Prepare to Defend

Written by Sam Whatley

Much of life is about rebuilding. This is obvious the older you get. Once you are past forty something you start to realize that there is more sand at the bottom of your hourglass than there is at the top. When you are young you are trying to build your life. After middle age, you start trying to rebuild the walls that have fallen down from neglect. They may be walls of physical health, finances, family relationships, or your own spiritual walk with Christ. But those areas are going to require work and diligence to repair.

Say "Yes" to Jesus: The Star of Christmas

Written by Kemi Searcy

I took a stroll to a nearby local departmental store on the evening of November 1, just to window shop. To my surprise, Christmas lights greeted me throughout the displays, a mere day after Halloween! All the bells and whistles of Christmas caught me off guard. It was hard to imagine Christmas displays so far from Christmas.

The Radical Book for Kids by Champ Thornton

I’m glad to say that this book passed the kid test. I deliberately left it lying on the table before my kids got home from school. My ten-year-old walked in, dumped her shoes and knapsack in the middle of the floor (we’re still working on that) and sauntered toward the kitchen. But she didn’t get there because she saw the book and just had to explore it. That’s a good sign.

The Value of Faith

Written by Bob Crittendon

What do you think is the value to society of the practice of religion?  Could you place a “dollar value” on it?

Well, two researchers have attempted to do just that. Brian Grim of Georgetown University and his daughter, Melissa Grim of Newseum Institute, have released a study that has calculated three estimates of religion’s socio-economic value to the United States, according to an article on the Christianity Today website.

Hearing the Love

Written by Saralu (Sam) Belkofer

1 Corinthians, Chapter 13

Verse 1: “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal…”

Verses 4, 5, and 6: “… Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth…”

God's Fingerprints

Written by Sam Whatley

God’s fingerprints are everywhere, especially in the world of nature. This point came back to me as I watched a documentary about the migration of barn swallows from Africa to Europe and back.

I Want to Forgive, But How?

Written by Kemi Searcy

An offense creates highly detrimental weather between us and our fellow humans or even God. Holding onto an offense is never profitable because it allows our souls to be poisoned by the slime of bitterness, resentments, anger, rage, and un-forgiveness that brings about a wounded spirit.
