Blessed is the Peacemaker

By Lynne Conley / last year

Barnabas was a resident of Cyprus, a Levite. His parents called him José’s, but the apostles called him Barnabas. He owned some land which he later sold.  He gave all of the earnings to the church in Jerusalem. ‘’But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had […]


The Reflection

By Monique Bryant / last year

When I look into the mirror, The fear begins to rise. For on my face, I see the trace; The reflection never lies. And the memories seem to haunt me, It’s hard to face the truth. While the task to wear another mask; Has been there since my youth. And as I gazed into the looking glass, I […]


Are You For REAL?

By Sheri Boulet / last year

I attended a funeral this week for a man that I deeply cared for. Distance has kept us from becoming as close to him as we would have liked, but we did love him. It grieved me to watch his family deal with the loss, but they did so with grace and strength. As usual, […]


Where Have I Been?

By Sheri Boulet / last year

Where Have I Been? Well, in case there is ANYONE out there wondering where have I been or what has happened to me, my Internet has been down. But, we had a healing service at the house tonight and are back up and running. I have been really preoccupied with life lately, so fixing it […]

By Stephanie Hardesty (Steffanie H. Russ) / last year

So, I’m sitting here with this supposedly high-speed DSL…waiting for the page to reload. It can get rather irritating as I’m sure some of you will agree. In this “instant” world we live in we want everything at the drop of a hat…all the way down to the Internet. While I’m waiting, I recall a […]


God Gave Us You

By Sharon Arnold / a couple of years ago

God Gave Us You (for Pastor and Sister JosephDomingues) We turned to you as children, alone, in Nineteen Hundred Ninety-Six; We sought for love in your honored eyes, rejoiced to find reflected in our own, a new flame, and faith to dance in this new place! And what we saw in growing wonder, Our eyes […]


Dealing With Offenses

By Marvin Hinds / a couple of years ago

Resentment. Anger. Insult. If you’ve been offended by someone, you’re familiar with these feelings.  The pain has broken your spirit. The negative effect in your life doesn’t seem to go away. God makes it clear; the offense will come. (“… offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!” Luke 17:1KJV) No matter […]

Like…Totally I was in the kitchen yesterday, cooking when some sticky pork blood got on my hand. Suddenly I was 16 again… “EWWWW! Grody to the max!!” I exclaimed, then quickly gazed around the kitchen to make sure no one heard me. I have listened to my elders, noted their wording, admired their phrases, with […]


Today I Brought My Sons To The Temple

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Almost 31 years ago, God blessed me with a beautiful baby boy.  Sixteen months later a second little boy arrived to complete our family.  Both of my boys attended their first church service almost from birth; Steven at 4 days old and Philip at only 2 ½ days old.  When they were only a few […]


KISS: Keep It Simply Simple

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

KISS Good morning! Start your day with a praise to Him. In a sales class many years ago, the instructor told us to KISS! We were all a bit taken back until he explained it meant, Keep It Simply Simple! He went on to show us we sometimes make things a lot more complicated than […]
