  • 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.

  • Make the most of your days with the right path in life

    The year has already begun – 2011 has started with a bang. One month has already flown by and life continues to move at a rapid rate. It seems the older you get, the faster life goes by. Do you think about what’s left? How many years do I have? What kind of quality of life will they be? What kind of health will I be in? Will my money hold out? And what about this day? Where will I go from here?

  • People should cultivate a culture of life, not death

    “God created man in his image” Gen. 1:27. We share in God’s divine life. There are many people in our country and many good things are happening in our country. We are proud of them and grateful to God for all the blessings, especially the gift of life.

    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.
