Promises, Promises

by admin

Promises, Promises By Wendy Wippel We all know the Bible contains lots of God’s promises to His own. At least 3573 actually.(Someone counted). In fact, the word “promise” itself occurs over 50 times in the Bible. There are some verses, I‘m guessing, that just about all of God’s children have struggled with once or twice, […]

Perseverance

Perseverance By Steve Schmutzer I have a tiny note taped to the top right corner of my computer screen. It’s a diminutive reminder from a fortune cookie that reads, “Your hard work will pay off today.” I’m an entrepreneur cursed with big visions, and while I place zero credibility on fortune cookies, I can use […]

Giving Glory to God

Giving Glory to God Witnessing Tools By Steve Schmutzer Sometimes my focus just gets away from me. I prepared scrambled eggs for my family early this morning. I cracked the egg against the counter and carefully dropped the yolk and white into the trash can while I tossed the empty shells into the bowl to […]

Christianity and the Jewish Holy Days

Christianity and the Jewish Holy Days By J.L. Robb Should the Church observe the holy days and feasts that are outlined in the Old Testament? This question has been asked and pondered for nearly 2,000 years. It was not pondered, however, by the earliest believers in Christ; because they were all Jewish. They kept the […]

Know Fear

Know Fear Witnessing Tools By Steve Schmutzer Sometimes I read things in the Bible that – at the very least – concern me deeply. So, let me be up-front about some background. I believe I’m a born-again Christian and therefore a secure child of God. I don’t say that because I’m able to point to […]

A Singular Celebration

A Singular Celebration Witnessing Tools By Wendy Wippel Of all the  principle players in the Christmas Story, the most enigmatic, in my humble opinion, is Simeon. The guy who was in charge, at the time, of circumcision for new male additions to the Jewish Tribe. The Bible calls him just and devout, waiting for the  […]

The Night of Broken Glass

by admin

The Night of Broken Glass By J.L. Robb As I write, it is November 11, Veterans Day. A salute to all veterans, because it is never an easy job. During wars, you see what most never see; and it is not pretty. What is pretty is the freedom you bring as a gift to others, […]

Swarms Without Number

Swarms Without Number By Wendy Wipple As somebody who’s never lived closer than 700 miles from a large body of water, I’ve never had any desire to actually immerse myself in an ocean. Closest thing in my experience was swimming in an actual swimming hole every summer at Girl Scout Camp, and, in that context, […]

On Christian Jihad & Peace Making

by admin

On Christian Jihad & Peace Making By Alf Cengia When we hear the word “jihad” I bet most of us are on the same page. We conjure up images of terrorists with guns, or someone with a bomb strapped around their torso, or even someone flying a plane into a building. These images of jihad […]
