  • Responding in Love

    The Apostle Paul has a pastor’s heart, which is borne out in his writings. Consider his letter to the church at Philippi, a church he dearly loved. He tells them they are in his mind, in his heart and in his prayers (Philippians 1:3-11).

    The church at Philippi had been founded by Paul on his second missionary journey. The work was small at first among a few women by the river side. Lydia, a seller of purple, was his first convert, and she was soon joined by the Philippian jailer and his family (Acts 16:12-40).

  • Genealogy extends well beyond the library’s doors

    I am one of those folks who enjoys reading nonfiction stories, like the journey that led the Wright Brothers to a successful airplane flight or how patriots during the Revolutionary War laid their lives on the line for the sake of liberty. I appreciate the dedication and courage of generations before me such as that shown by Corrie ten Boom in The Hiding Place.
