  • 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

  • Church honors Vets, first responders
  • Why me?

    Our country witnessed a devastating storm “Sandy” just last week claiming more than one hundred lives and loss to property. Around the same time the people in our Carroll County also suffered the tragic death of two children in a bus accident. 

    Several questions can pop up in our minds during such occasions. Why did the innocent children get killed in this way? Why is nature getting so cruel and violent — sweeping away the lives of people and damaging properties? Why is it happening to my family, to my beloved ones, in my neighborhood and country?

  • Changing a person’s words can alter that person’s life

    I was in a bookstore a few weeks ago and noticed that a well-known Christian speaker and author had recently released a book called “Change Your Words, Change Your Life.” I was immediately struck by the title. If a person is looking for a positive change in his or her life, this book may hold the answer. After all, the promise seems straightforward and simple — if I can alter the way I speak, then this will alter the way I live. But is this true?

  • The love of God can bring change to a sinner’s heart

    As I sit here with this pen in hand, I am asking my Savior what he would have me say in this great opportunity to address the greatest community in the world to live. 

    First, I believe he would say you are loved by him, forgiven by him, made free by him, and saved by him. We cannot get away from his love because the blood of Calvary is real and everlasting.  Calvary changed everything. His name is Jesus, He did it all for us because of His love for us to make a new way of living without sin.  We do not have to sin any more, his blood has washed us from it.
