We do not always acknowledge it but the Bible speaks frequently on the subject of marriage and family. Let’s listen in as the Bible makes some key points on this important subject: Commitment “Haven’t you read, ” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason […]

Remember

“I remember when…” These words are usually said with pleasure. Occasionally they may be uttered with pain. Memory, the ability to store, retain, and recall information and experiences, is a fundamental component of human personality. Most of us take memory for granted. But when we do think about it, we realize this ability to remember […]

Advent is Here!

We are now in the season of Advent, the season of 40 days leading up to Christmas, which helps us to prepare for the celebration of the birth of Christ. As I said in my article last month, after the unpredictability of 2020, I’m resting in the fact that the rhythm of this season will […]

We know not only that God knows […]

What’s in Your Pocket

I sighed as I looked over the Sunday School lesson for the week. Just another lesson on stewardship, I acknowledged. It seems such lessons come around more often than ever. My interest was pricked, however, as the teacher began the lesson. He laid out on a small table several items including a cell phone, a […]

The Power of Clear Communication

We live an age of communication miracles. Live TV pictures flash wonderfully clear from space probes millions of miles out in the solar system. Anyone can pick up a push button telephone and converse with someone else anywhere in the world within seconds. People talk to computers over long distance lines. Computers communicate with each […]
