  • Just like voters choosing a leader, Christians elect God

    Every so often we have to choose our leaders in our countries; some govern four years and others up to six years.

    Each candidate has to offer us, that if we give them our vote, the country will flourish, the economy will bloom, better medical attention and education for our families and so justice will finally be right for everyone … and in the end, what don’t they promise?

  • Oct. 27 blitz to help bring comfort in time for winter

    God is blessing us with autumn in the brilliant contrast of blue and white sky and the deliciously pleasant cool weather.

    This year the fall colors promise to be more spectacular than we have seen in a few years.

    The poet Gerard Manley Hopkins tells it like it is: “The world is charged with the grandeur of God. It will flame out, like shining from shook foil … Nature is never spent; there lives the dearest freshest deep down things.”

    Psalm 8:2 says “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.”

    Below are some of the results of what the children wrote. Let these truths about God speak to your life and silence anything you are battling today:

     

  • Choose a relationship with Jesus and have the ‘best part’

    Life is full of choices. We choose daily different directions and options – everything from the color of the shirt we will wear to what we will eat for dinner.

    Everything in life is a choice, and everything we do is based on a decision. As we grow older, we sense the importance of making the right decisions. God gives us an open-book test; this life comes with an instruction manual called the Bible.
