More Than An Idea

September 11, 2014

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” (James 1:27) “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the […]

The Cost of Leadership

September 8, 2014

When people are thrust into a leadership position, they are sometimes surprised by the expectations. Leaders are viewed differently than everyone else. This is evident each time there is a presidential election. The candidates are grilled. Their backgrounds are checked, rechecked, and checked again. Minor missteps are made front page news and dissected on 24 […]

Musings

September 5, 2014

What Color is Your Church? Sean Palmer nails race relations within the church. If you read one thing this week, make sure this is it. He writes, Christians have known for a long time that Sunday morning at 10:00am is the most segregated hour of the week, but curiously, we do, or care, little about […]

A Back to School Prayer

August 21, 2014

Father of heaven and earth and all creation, I praise your holy and glorious name. I thank you for the privilege of learning. You have filled this world with things too wonderful to comprehend. You are the source of all goodness, beauty, and truth. I am amazed by the little I have come to know […]

To Mourn, or Not to Mourn

August 13, 2014

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” (Romans 12:15) “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4) With the inception of social media the way we mourn has changed. When someone dies many people now choose to post tributes on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. When someone famous dies […]

Where Shall We Look For Hope?

August 11, 2014

“Say not, ‘Why were the former days better than these?’     For it is not from wisdom that you ask this.” (Ecclesiastes 7:10) When times are bad where do you look for hope? When evil is all around and pressing in where do you long to be? These questions are important. Although they may seem simple, […]

Labels and Lies

July 31, 2014

I have asked a few of my friends to write posts on the labels Christians use. This post is by Peter Horne. Confession: I like to use labels. Labels break the world down into bite sized chunks. If you’re from a particular state, or city, I feel like I know certain things about you. If […]

What Label Would Jesus Choose?

July 30, 2014

I never got into the WWJD craze a few years ago. I never had a bracelet or a t-shirt. At the time I thought it was a little simplistic and I never have liked the idea of commercializing parts of the Christian faith. Putting the consumeristic aspect aside, WWJD is a helpful practice. Sometimes questions […]

Becoming a Good Friend

July 17, 2014

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!” (Eccl. 4:9-10) Everyone needs a friend. Friendship is a valuable thing. It is […]
