  • COLUMN: Afghanistan: Where will it lead?

     Recent U.S. administration announcements could lead one to conclude that the war in Afghanistan is ending. 

    On the contrary. The plan that President Obama recently announced just relies upon different military solutions, rather than peaceful alternatives for the Afghan people.

    How so? Under this plan Afghanistan will become a major non-NATO ally, subjecting the people of Afghanistan to yet another military alliance and continuing the last three decades of war and instability. 

  • COLUMN: Stone memorial used as visual sermon

    Allow me one more thought from Joshua 3 and 4 before we leave it. Last week we looked at the experience of Joshua leading the children of Israel across the Jordan River. God instructed them to take 12 stones from the riverbed to make a monument where they camped the first night. The stones would be a way to share their faith with their children and also a witness to other nations how God had miraculously stopped the river’s flow for the people to cross.

  • REGION BASEBALL: Hawks defeat Adair

  • COLUMN: One man showed faith through planting crosses

    They’re called Crosses of Mercy, three tall crosses — two pale blue and one gold — planted across at least 29 states and Washington, D.C., plus Zambia and the Philippines.

    Where I live in Florida, I’ve seen several sets of them and I’ve always wondered about them since they don’t seem to be connected to any one church. They’re usually out in the middle of nowhere, randomly planted on the highway.
