Marriage Benefits

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

Family life is of great benefit to us - and we recognize that a home where God is worshipped and honored and His principles are placed in motion can produce a high degree of security and satisfaction.  I am so grateful to celebrate this month 23 years of marriage to my lovely, wonderful, and Godly wife, Beth.  We have seen the Lord bless our union and our family in amazing ways, for which I am deeply thankful!

It’s Not a Prayer, or Is It?

Written by Bob Crittendon

The issue of the use of prayer to open a legislative meeting will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this fall.  The high court agreed to decide whether or not an upstate New York town is violating the Constitution with its prayers to open public meetings.  The justices will review an appeals court ruling that held that the town of Greece, a Rochester suburb, violated the constitutional prohibitions on government sanction of religion by opening nearly every meeting over an 11-year span with prayers that trended Christian.

Hope in a Post-Christian Age

Written by Bob Crittendon

The era in which we live has been described as “post-Christian”, and there is significant research that shows the numbers of people who are religiously unaffiliated, also known as the “nones”.  Several months ago, I wrote about that group of people, which could be as high as 1 out of 5 members of our population.

What’s Your Sign?

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

A set of parents in Florida who had been disappointed in their 13-year-old’s behavior took a unique approach to punishment recently, according to a report on Yahoo!  On a particular Saturday, the teen spent 90 minutes standing at a busy intersection with a handwritten sign describing her sins.  It read: “I’m a self-entitled teenager w/no respect for authority. I’m also super smart, yet I have 3 ‘Ds’ because I DON’T CARE.”

Shake It Up!

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

I think that people are watching us, especially if they know that we call upon the name of the Lord.  They may be observing in a cynical way, hoping to see us stumble or fall. They may be looking to us for hope in their lives. We may be the person that points them to an answer in their lives, or someone through whom God brings an answer to prayer.  We are called to readiness - for God to use us in whatever circumstances He pleases, in order to bring honor to Him, to make Him famous.

Fountain of Life/Fountain of Youth

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

 

Recently, my wife and kids and I journeyed to the house in which I grew up, in the Atlanta area, to throw a 90th birthday party for my mother.  My wife, Beth, who has an incredible gift of hospitality, organized the food and décor and designed the invitations; my preparatory role was to handle the printing and mailing.  On a windy, cold, rainy December afternoon, dozens came together to honor my mother…

Let’s Hear It For the “Nones”

Written by Bob Crittendon

There is no doubt that the sphere of religious practice is changing before our very eyes.  We have beheld the development of a variety of worship styles, a broadening of the types of churches where people will worship, and a significant group of people who either do not worship at all or are what we might called unaffiliated or even unchurched.

Advent-ure

Written by Bob Crittendon

There has been this frequent struggle that ensues this time of the year over the amount of commercialism that we allow into our Christmas celebration.  We say that we desire a simpler holiday celebration and try to keep the focus on our Savior’s birth, but we end up getting caught up in the shopping frenzy and the age-old questions about what we’re going to give the kids for Christmas, what sort of tie we’re going to buy for the dad who has everything, where we’re going to spend Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the week after Christmas, and so on and so forth.

A Little Good News

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

The news that the church in America is in decline has some statistical support – you’ve probably heard that church attendance is decreasing, churches are closing, and fewer people profess a belief in God.  But, writing off the church – the entity, as described in Scripture – is premature. Here’s why:
