Are You Ready to Grumble?

April 27, 2014

  They set out from Elim, and all the congregation of the people of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had departed from the land of Egypt. And the whole congregation of the people of Israel grumbled against […]

A Prayer By Karl Barth

March 27, 2014

O Lord, our God! Thou knowest who we are: human beings with a good or bad conscience, some content and others discontent, some secure and others insecure, convinced Christians and nominal Christians, believers, half-believers, and unbelievers. Thou also knowest whence we have come: from the bonds of family and friendship or from great loneliness, from […]

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 […]

Letters To My Children

March 2, 2014

Dear Children, I wish you lived in a world full of grace. I wish you lived in a world where people were always kind, merciful, and treated people better than they deserve. Sadly, this is not the case and if you haven’t learned this already, then you will soon. This world is harsh and unkind. […]

The Importance of Being Thankful

December 2, 2013

“We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.

Getting To Know Grace

November 27, 2013

A Change in Greeting

November 7, 2013

A couple of months ago I made a decision to change my greeting when I get up to speak. I used to say “good morning” but now I say “grace and peace” or something similar. To be honest I miss saying “good morning” and hearing all the congregation respond by saying “good morning” in return. […]

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 […]

Christians in the Media The people over at Christ and Pop Culture have shared a great video of Ira Glass, host of This American Life, sharing his thoughts on how Christians are portrayed in the media.
