  • Craftsman guides New Haven church project

    The stately beauty of the great oaken doors was there all along, but it was buried beneath layers of  paint and needed the caring hands of a master craftsman to bring it out again.

    The Rev. Troy Overton knew just the man.

  • The Apostle Paul suggests the best way to live

    “The Lord is near.” Paul makes this statement in Philippians 4:5 as he speaks of the second coming of Christ.

    In light of Christ’s soon return what should we do? The apostle makes suggestions.

    First he says, “Let your gentleness be evident to all.” The way of Christ is gentleness and kindness. Some want to throw their weight around and are not nice, kind and gentle. Paul said in light of the soon return of Christ, we need to be kind and gentle to all people.

  • Labeling an entire subgroup is a mistake

    A few weeks ago, the buzz on some news outlets and online was about Michael Jeffries, the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch. It wasn’t really news, but rather statements Jeffries made to Salon magazine in 2006 in reference to the clothing brand not including women’s sizes bigger than large.

  • Statistics are brutal when they hit home

    One-in-five Ethiopian babies will die before reaching age 5.

    Some websites say it is one-in-11.

    Either way – what a brutal statistic.

    According to the National Institute of Health, Ethiopians have large families that suffer from a lack of basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and health care and education.

    Too many children – not enough resources. It’s no wonder so many Ethiopian children die so early – while others are orphaned.
