  • People haven’t changed

    For my daily Bible reading, I have been reading the book of Acts for the past couple of weeks.

    The book is mainly about the spread of Christianity and the missionary travels of Apostle Paul as he spreads the news of Jesus Christ. It has been more interesting to me as I want to see the new movie “Paul, Apostle of Christ.”

  • Winners and Losers


    How should we handle a victory? How should we act when we lose? Regrettably all of us have failed in our responses and reactions in competitive games, events, or votes. Our words and behaviors on such occasions may have even caused lasting damage to important relationships. Here are a few biblical tips to prepare us for our next loss, or future victory.

  • Wait Upon the Lord

    One of my favorite scripture verses is Isaiah 40:31, “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not get tired; they will walk and not become weary.” Other prophets used condemnation, but Isaiah tried a healing hand. The comfort was based on the fact that Israel’s sins had been confessed and forgiven.

  • Chess club at ALES

     Since the arrival of video games, many young people are growing up without enjoying the fun of sitting across a table from an opponent, contemplating their strategy while playing on actual boards.

    The students in the chess club at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, however, are competing the old fashioned way, learning the rules of the game as they challenge fellow club members.
