Lacking and Slacking on Elders

By Steven Lewis / a couple of years ago

The Bible uses Elders on a constant basis to raise up the next generation whether bad or good.  Even Moses recognized elders out of respect not because he was subject to them in spirit but because an elder is worthy of the respect. When his Father-in-law Jethro who was not a Jew made statements to help […]

Nobody’s Home

By Sheri Boulet / a couple of years ago

I was driving in the country yesterday. I have to admit I have always loved the rural south. Even as a young girl coming here just for a visit, I was always fascinated by the country side. I can remember one of my desires was to just drive the state and document the old abandoned […]

Life In The Slow Lane

By Sheri Boulet / a couple of years ago

Life In The Slow Lane Well, I have been in *HOTLANTA* for the past 5 days for some training. I was, of course, having major palpitations just thinking about driving in that traffic with the added bonus of the spaghetti junctions thrown in for good measure. The trip in was fine. And really, it was […]

Common Sense

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

“…Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” Job 28:28, Sometimes you just have to use good common sense. Nothing else can replace it. Good common sense is also a very rare commodity; it is not something that everyone has. Some have a lot of it and […]

Do People Look At You Strange? Are You a Gaijin?

By Martin Schmaltz / a couple of years ago

When I minister in other countries, there is this barely perceptible, but yet real emotional maybe psychological thing that happens when I return home.  It seems that when I arrive back at the first major U.S. airport, there is this sigh and relaxation that passes through me. As I am making my way to immigrations, […]

Right Priorities

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

Good morning! From the time we are small children there are certain things that are drilled into our minds as being important. Meals or food. We eat several times a day. Huge buildings are dedicated to selling food; eating places and advertisements are everywhere. Clothing is seen as a status symbol more than a covering. […]

Its time to believe

By Steven Lewis / a couple of years ago

We have heard it time and time again, “Don’t look back”, but we keep on turning our heads to see, and if not our heads our minds, and if not our minds our hearts.  Jesus is soon to return and each and everyone of us is going to have to give an account for what […]

Disturbed!!!

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

I watched my 3-week old grandson as he lay in my arms fast asleep.  Unable to resist, I gently nuzzled his soft little cheek.  It was just enough, he opened his eyes and screwed up his little face; Grandma had disturbed him and he was not happy!  Like Nathan I have settled into a comfortable […]

SALT the Great Influencer!

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

SALT the Great Influencer! Good morning! Having a good day is your choice… “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” Matt 5:13 Have […]

The Process of Giving Birth

By Sheri Boulet / a couple of years ago

As a Labor and Delivery nurse I don’t often get to see the stages of labor played out before my eyes anymore since most of our patients opt to have an epidural which allows them to be in relative comfort for the most part until the birth. But the other night I had a beautiful […]
