  • Spiritual Warfare

    By Jonathan Carl

    Guest Columnist

    Satan is real. Demons are real. There is a real battle, a conflict that is largely unseen. Satan and his demons are at war with the followers of Christ and are constantly seeking avenues to attack God’s children, sometimes directly, but oftentimes through the world and our fleshly desires. We cannot ignore the reality of the unseen world and unseen beings.

    “The real war is inward of which the outer action is but the echo and reverberation.” Harry Emerson Fosdick

  • A Sure Foundation

    The foundation for a building is so very important when the winds and the storms come (Matthew 7:24-28).  Recently, on a downtown trip in Louisville, I observed the way a construction company was digging very deeply to lay the proper foundation for a building that would reach high above the earth.  Taking time for a proper foundation is time well spent.

  • How to improve cell phone reception

    My office is in the basement level of my home. And even though it is a sunlight basement, one wall is exposed with walkout and windows, cell phone reception from local towers is weak. Even when upstairs, I had difficulty receiving a cell phone signal because I am almost equal distance between two cell towers. I imagine many of you have the same problem. But, take heart, there may, and I say “may,” be a solution for you.

    Thought for the week: Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal and not wound.
