    CAYR Ministry set for Friday in Prestonville

  • Corrie ten Boom story offers reason to always give thanks

    One of my “heroes of the faith” is Dutch Holocaust survivor, Corrie ten Boom. She wrote about her experiences with the Nazis during World War II in her autobiography, “The Hiding Place.” This book literally changed my life. Though it is not very “manly” to admit, I wept as I read page after page of not only God miraculously intervening to preserve the lives of Corrie and her sister Betsie but also of love overcoming evil. If you need an example of the Christian faith applied to real life, look no further than Corrie ten Boom.

  • Father’s lesson delivers message for young boy

    There was a boy who was consistently late coming home from school. One day his parents warned him that he was to be home on time or the next time he was late, he would receive nothing but bread and water at the dinner table.

  • Reason for Christmas often is lost

    Holiday merchandise bursts into color on shelves of every wholesaler and retailer three months in advance of Christmas. Holiday exchanges and sales carry the spirit of gift giving right into the New Year. We are hard pressed to find public reference to why celebrating Christmas is such an all-consuming yearly experience, except that successful marketing throughout the Christmas season is crucial to reaping the lion’s share of business’ yearly profits.

  • Where does Christmas come from? Not a store

    One of my favorite children’s book and Christmas TV special is “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” I have watched this show faithfully for years.
    We all know the story, the Grinch despises the Who’s down in Whoville with their Christmas celebration. The Grinch hates all the “Noise, Noise, Noise” from the toys and their singing.  Then he came up with the “wonderful” idea to stop Christmas from coming.
