Philomena

March 6, 2014

Philomena is a film that has flown under most people’s radars. Surprisingly, it was nominated for best picture at the Academy Awards, but it was probably the least known film out of all the nominees. This is sad because Philomena is a well made film that Christians should take note of. It is a story […]

A Story of Faith and Hope For those of you who don’t know, my sister-in-law was born with a rare heart condition and has had multiple surgeries. She and my brother, who live in Oklahoma, have travelled as far as Cleveland, OH to have a surgery on her heart. They have both been an inspiration […]

Forgive Us Our Trespasses

October 2, 2013

C.S. Lewis once said “Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until he has something to forgive.”[1] Everyone wants forgiveness but it is a hard thing to practice. When we are offended we want revenge. We want to get back at those who have wronged us. Sometimes there are people whom we think do not […]

A Prayer by Nikolai Velimirovic

August 8, 2013

Bless my enemies, O Lord. Even I bless them and do not curse them. Enemies have driven me into your embrace more than friends have. Friends have bound me to earth, enemies have loosed me from earth and have demolished all my aspirations in the world. Enemies have made me a stranger in worldly realms…Just as a hunted […]

Thy Will be Done

Justin Zoradi writes, “The gospel of forgiveness isn’t a high calling for the heroic individual, or a counter-cultural description of heavenly perfection. It is a principle central to the gospel itself – the very […]

Quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.

January 21, 2013

As I have been skimming the web today I have been amazed by all the Martin Luther King Jr. quotes that have been posted on Facebook, Twitter, and other places. Some of these quotes I had read many times before and others were brand new to me. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great leader […]

C.S. Lewis on Forgiveness

August 13, 2012

The above video is the incredible story of how a woman found healing, not in justice, but in forgiveness. The quote below is from an essay C.S. Lewis wrote on forgiveness. The entire essay can be found in the book The Weight of Glory. “We believe that God forgives us our sins; but also that […]

Forgiveness

July 24, 2012

Here are two videos on forgiveness that I found helpful. Lewis Smedes and Miroslav Volf have both written extensively on the subject of forgiveness. I would recommend any of their books if you are studying the subject for yourself, or teaching on forgiveness. Smedes is a bit more practical, whereas Volf is more theological. I […]
