So Much More than Yard Work

A family in our community group is moving in a couple months. Knowing that they would have a lot of work to get their home ready for sale and that they would likely not ask for help out of sensitivity to the busy schedules of their friends, our group made a point of stressing our availability to help. We were thrilled when, in response, they asked for volunteers to help with some yard projects...

Thanksgiving Revisited

It is a good and right thing to offer thanks to God for how he preserved the lives of settlers many centuries ago. Their character, their perseverance, their sacrifice: wonderful evidence of God’s work. And, since this is a good and right thing to do, it is not uncommon for family and friends to take the opportunity this holiday provides and share their own gratitude. In our country...

When Morality is Wrongly Placed

We look at the world around us, the culture in our nation, and the climate of values across the globe and we can easily believe that we are experiencing the most degraded morality in history. Every generation, however, is certain that the immorality prevalent in their time is the worst that history has seen. Here’s the truth, though: it’s all bad. We should not expect anything...
