  • God’s mercy and grace act much like Priestley’s eraser

    You have probably never heard of Joseph Priestley. If you have ever made a mistake in writing, you owe him a bit of thanks because he is the man who invented the eraser. 

    Priestley lived in the 1700s in England and was the son of a minister. As an adult, he came to America and was, for a time, a Unitarian minister.  He seemed more interested in chemistry than theology, however, and the invention of the eraser came to Priestley when he studied the sap of a South American tree newly introduced to Europe. 

  • The importance of family is found in the Word of God

    Many parents worry for their families, and especially for their children’s future. But the actual question would be, what is really being done for them?
    We think that having a good job, a good house and a good car, providing them with food, buying them clothes and giving them an education so that they face the future on their own, means that we have accomplished our job as parents. But what about moral principles and, most importantly, what about God’s principles?

  • Story offers lesson on how to be grateful for blessings

    Luke 17:12-19 says: “As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’
    ‘When he saw them, he said, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went, they were cleansed.
    ‘One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

  • Christians can learn from what atheists are saying

    My son landed in a college course on Atheism last year. As you would expect, this raised his old man’s eyebrows. Having read my share of stormy essays and sympathetic voices of doubt, I wondered how a preacher’s kid would hear these voices. The good news is that he weathered the hostility of Marx, Freud, and Dawkins and is hopefully a bit more thoughtful about the thought required of faith.

  • Weekly family day shows we’re all together in this

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.

    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.

    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother MUST make seven-layer dip.
