  • Pearl of great price buried deep in time of ‘me first’

    Solomon was dreaming about his new ministry as king of God’s people Israel. King David, his father, had been a most worthy leader, and Solomon wanted so much to follow in his father’s footsteps and govern well.

    This young king understood the awesome privilege and responsibility he was facing (1 Kings 3:5-9).

  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Carroll County: Why we do what we do

    Plans are under way for our second walkathon, 9 a.m. to noon, Sept. 24 at county park to support the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Carrollton. Our second full school year is nearly upon us, and we look forward to the new mentoring friendships on the way.

    During our most recent planning meeting, a handful of board members started talking about why we serve as mentors and leaders in this effort to bring more quality adults into the lives of children. We came up with 10 solid reasons. Maybe they will influence you to come alongside us in this effort.

  • Church hosts conference for deaf
  • Small groups provide guidance, camaraderie, encouragement

    I really anticipate early Saturday mornings. I know that the following awaits me: good coffee, great conversations about life and the Bible, and deep friendships that encourage me as a husband, father and friend.

    No matter how long we gather together over coffee, I walk away strengthened, encouraged and challenged in my own life; for this, I am grateful.

    I am appreciative of what my friends can bring to the table on a Saturday morning, and I hope that the feeling is mutual.

  • IN GOD'S HOUSE

    I spent several hours last week preparing my Bible study lessons on the Book of Genesis. It is amazing to compare the story of creation to life as it is today.

    The study on creation helped me, more and more, to see life of God in every one and in every thing. I see the vibration of God’s life everywhere.

    These days, all of us enjoy the sunrise and sunset.

  • Follow Samaritan’s example by putting others’ needs first

    I read recently of an experiment that took place in 1970. Two psychologists from Princeton University gathered a group of seminary students and told them that they were to give a brief message to a group of their professors.

    Some of the students were given adequate time to prepare and adequate time to get across campus. Others were not. The ones who were not were told that they were already running late. This group was given only a few minutes to put together a talk and to get to where they were to deliver their message.
