  • To the schools: We're praying for you!

    A house without windows would not be very inviting.  Windows serve two functions ­— they let light in from the outside, and they allow us to view the beauty of the outside world.

    Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, an American-Swiss psychiatrist, a pioneer in near-death studies and author of the book, Death and Dying, said “People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.”

  • The greatest story ever told

    According to Emerson the story of the Prodigal Son was the greatest short story in or outside the Bible.  Many would agree with him.  The parable reveals much — the love of God in picture form, the heart of God, how far one can go from God, the hope for one in the far country and the toll of a life lived apart from God.

  • To the Young: Pick up the Pace

    The youth of today encounter many challenges and have many blessings that previous generations did not. My heart enjoys fond memories of my youth, but also hurts to remember the foolishness of my own youthful actions and attitudes. I am burdened for the young, that they learn God’s lessons the easy way through the Word and not through the painful lessons of life. Here are some observations and truths from Psalm 71.

  • The Command to Gather Together

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    A growing trend within the Christian culture is the abandonment of the local church. Fewer believers are committing to a local church as a member and most of them find reasons not to regularly attend. Recently, a study revealed that individuals who do not regularly attend church but claim to be believers state reasons such as:

    1. I need down time

    2. There are no good churches nearby

    3. The needs of my family are not met

    4. They feel that it is nothing but routine

  • Searching for Happiness

    Solomon became involved in a search for happiness that has gone on since the beginning of time.  Ecclesiastes 12 is the conclusion of a long hard battle.  King Solomon was trying to discover the meaning of life.  He wanted to be happy.

    King Solomon didn’t want to miss out on anything.  He wanted to know how he could be happy without hurting himself or someone else.  He looked for happiness in things, but he concluded by finding happiness in God.
