The results are in and the 2013 Word of the Year, according to the dictionary people at Merriam-Webster, is “science” (“cognitive” was second), according to a CNN story, which reports that over at the Oxford American Dictionaries US, the top word is “selfie”, the result of the word’s growing usage and digital fame.  Its U.S. counterpart picked “science” primarily based on numbers on its website.  Merriam-Webster reportedly looked at the most searched-for words on its online dictionary, as well as those that showed the biggest increase in the number of look-ups.

The Lost Are Found

Written by Bob Crittendon

A few weeks ago, a significant number of Christians were focused on an unusual set of circumstances involving renowned Bible teacher and Experiencing God author Dr. Henry Blackaby.  On a particular Thursday afternoon, he was on his way to pick up his wife, Marilynn, from an appointment, and was reported to be missing – for 29 hours.  Indications are that at some point he had suffered a heart attack while driving.  He apparently became confused, lost his sense of direction, and attempted unsuccessfully to find his way home.  He ultimately was pulled over by police near Tifton, Georgia, about 150 miles south of Atlanta.

Make It Right

Written by Bob Crittendon

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!

Itís 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.

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.”
