  • Learn to face all of life’s challenges as Paul did

    Think about the times when you have felt truly satisfied in your life. What caused you to feel that way at that moment?

  • Drop your rock: Look to Jesus and love instead of hate

    Forget about the feuds between the North and the South, the Hatfields and McCoys, or even “West Side Story’s” the Sharks and the Jets.

    Dubbed the “A-POP-calypse,” we — at least in the world of pop music — are in the middle of a battle royale between the Katy Cats and the Little Monsters, the fans (or “stans” as they’re called) of singers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.

  • Hope and help for the hugging averse at church

    Confession: I really, really, really hate to admit this but there’s a certain part of any church service that I dread — the “turn around and greet those around you” part.

    If you ask my sister what’s up with that she’ll tell you it’s because I’m “people intolerant.” She’s lactose intolerant — I’m people intolerant.

    She’s kidding. Sort of.

  • Worshipping or worrying?

    Genesis 8:20-21 says: “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart, ‘Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done.’”

  • God is with each person through their stuggles

    Have you ever noticed how Jesus seems to be drawn to broken-hearted people, like lepers, prostitutes, the sad, the sick or the sinful? The shattered people.

  • Modern technology has made communication easier, but less personal

    In our everyday lives it is always a good idea to be in constant communication. Parents communicate with their children and children with parents. We always like to keep in touch with our relatives, co-workers, friends of the family and even casual acquaintances.

    There are many outlets that greatly facilitate the way we do this, cell phones, e-mails and text messaging. It is now actually harder to stay out of touch with someone, and there are fewer excuses we can make because it only takes us a few seconds to say “Hi, how you doing?”
