  • Remember and give thanks for freedom

    Memorial Day is an attempt to remember and say “Thanks” to those who gave their best so that we could continue to enjoy our freedoms.
    Our present commemoration of this day came out of the Civil War when in 1865 some ladies in Vicksburg, Miss., chose May 30 as a day to place flowers on the graves of their war dead. This soon spread North and South and came to be known as “Decoration Day.” Finally, it was called “Memorial Day” to honor the fallen of all our nation’s wars who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

  • Sickness and sin began with Adam and Eve

    Physical illness and death are a result of the Fall, when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3).
    Throughout the Old and New Testaments, individuals prayed for healing. The gospels record 41 distinct healings as well as others that are mentioned generally. God at times healed directly, sometimes through a prophet, an apostle, or an ordinary believer (Acts 8:58).

  • Pay Attention: Put God's word into practice

      “Pay attention to what you’re doing.”

    You have more than likely heard this at some time in your life. It pays to give your attention to what you are doing. 

    Paying attention while driving is the concern of many people all the way to our lawmakers. Talking on a cell phone is one thing, but texting while driving can be criminal. I read that five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting.

  • COLUMN: Handling Difficulties

    Life is full of difficulties – Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York; the tornadoes in Missouri and Henryville, Ind.; or the Boston Marathon bombings this past week. When there are disasters – what do you do? Do we ask for help or try to go it on our own?

    Whether it is tragedies like those already mentioned, work problems, financial problems, raising kids, aging, health problems or things similar, we all need help as we travel the road of life. So when we find ourselves in difficult or desperate situations, what should we do?
