iWonder

Written by Pastor Allen Newton, Saint James UMC

A teacher asked her students to list on a sheet of paper the present Seven Wonders of the World. While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not turned in her paper yet. She asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were so many.” The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.” The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the Seven Wonders of the World are to see, to hear, to touch, to taste, to feel, to laugh, and to love.

Pastor’s Perspective

Written by Mike Chitwood, Cloverdale Baptist Church

The word “peace” may be a strange word to our culture, and even to us. The world we live in is certainly going through some troubling times. You as an individual may ask yourself, “What on earth can I do to make the world a more harmonious place?” Let me encourage you to begin with yourself. After all we have more control over our own behavior than we do anyone or anything else. By changing ourselves we can be an example to our community that we have a choice in how we respond to the chaos around us. In time this can inspire others to make the positive changes they may need to in their own attitudes.

Don’t Be a Phony

Written by Dr. Rob Couch

I managed to go through all of high school, earn a degree in English Literature from Auburn University, and complete seminary at Emory University without ever having read The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. About ten years ago I decided to discover why so many have made such a fuss about this book, and I went down to the local bookstore and purchased a copy. Unfortunately, after reading it, I was underwhelmed. The book is basically about a young man named Holden Caulfield who goes about his life complaining about everything and everybody. The number one thing Holden Caulfield complains about, however, has stuck with me. In what seemed like every other sentence Holden Caulfield calls someone a “phony.”

No Free Lunch?

Written by Scotty Harris, Grace Pointe Church

“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” – Hebrews 12:11, NIV

Is Jesus Your Top Priority?

Written by Dr. Jim Simoneau

On the fourth of July we are reminded of the founding fathers and the dream that God used to bring America to life. If you have read much about the founding fathers, you will realize that many of them made great sacrifices to found this nation. Some lost their fortunes, their families, even their own lives to help us be in a free Christian nation. Christian liberty was worth living for and dying for to them.

Dirty Armor = Clean Kids

Written by Rev. Anderson T. Graves, II

In 1 Samuel chapter 17, King Saul and the entire Israelite army are all dressed up in their battle armor, but nobody wants to go down into the valley and get down and dirty against the giant Goliath. For 40 days and 40 nights they all stand around in shiny armor.

Are We Making Disciples?

Written by Dr. Lawrence H. Phillips

The resurrected Jesus, in Matthew 28:19, said “As you go, make disciples…” Two questions come to mind. 1. How well is the church making disciples? 2. How do we know if a disciple is made?

Pastor's Perspective: 33 Years

Written by Vaughn Stafford

I had a friend challenge me the other day to consider doing “multiplication ministry” rather than “addition ministry.”  I will confess, between you and me, that I want the world to know Jesus and pray everyday that God will give me the opportunity to share His love with someone in a transformational way.  That zeal is wonderful, but I sometimes feel frustrated that I can’t be in more than one place at a time.  There are so many people, so many hurts and so many opportunities that no one person can touch everyone, at least not directly (unless you are Jesus)!
