  • I am No. 24601 — and so are you

    In case you haven’t seen “Les Misérables” — go see it. In case you don’t fully understand the concept of the power of grace and mercy to change a human heart — go see it.

    In case you’re caught up in the drive to make others pay for their wrongs and can’t see your own — go see it.

    I heard it said once that all of life illustrates Bible doctrine, and this movie does just that.

  • There are many questions about pain and suffering after the school shootings

    If you are like me, then you are beginning to be a bit overwhelmed by the evil that has manifested itself in our country as of late. 

    The shootings at the elementary school in Connecticut are a stark reminder that there is true darkness in the world.

    Many of you have asked the question of ‘why?’  My 5-year-old son knows enough of the world to ask the question of why, and I am sure your children do, too.

  • Repenting before God can help with achieving goals in the new year ahead

    We are leaving this year of 2012 behind and I wonder: Have we achieved the goals we set for ourselves? Did we overcome certain family troubles? Do we have a better job? Is our family better socially, economically and spiritually? Do we feel proud of our children?

    Perhaps we are asking ourselves many more questions – how many goals that we set for ourselves this year have we achieved and are we the same or worse than the year before.

  • Nativity on the Square
  • Advent celebrates the coming of the Lord Jesus

    The New Year in Christian circles begins four weeks before Christmas. We call this season of preparation Advent, which simply means “coming.”

    On each of the four Sundays of Advent, we light one of the four candles on the Advent wreath. It is a symbol of looking forward to the coming of Jesus. As the light on the wreath grows, so does our joy and anticipation for the feast of Christmas.

  • So what does an accident mean? Tragedy touches each family differently

    When I gave my heart to wisdom and to seek the task which has been done on the Earth — even though one should never sleep day or night — and I saw every work of God, I concluded that no one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, he will not discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot comprehend it.” Ecclesiastes 8:16-17
