Accumulation vs. Distribution – Using Possessions Generously

Christ teaches us in Matthew 6, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” The lure of materialism is blinding. Chasing comfort through a greater income or fancier […]

Ephesians 2:11-12 The Gospel and Racial Reconciliation

Noted international evangelist Billy Graham stated: “Racial and ethnic hostility is the foremost social problem facing our world today.” This startling observation suggests that racism is more than just one of many problems in the world.

Matthew 6:19-21 The Gospel and My Possessions

The way to die daily, practically, is to hold this world with a very loose hand. Birdlime so much abounds. When a man wins a little gain in this world it sticks to him, holds him, prevents his aspiring to heavenly things and holds him bound to earth. Our dear friends, and our beloved children […]

Philippians 4:11-13 – Contentment

Acts 20:1-16 Cooperation in Fulfilling God’s Mission

It is noteworthy that Paul hardly ever travelled alone, and that when he was alone, he expressed his longing for human companionship, for example in Athens and in his final Roman imprisonment.

Ladies Fellowship Night – Recap

Ladies Fellowship Night  is one of those events that I have to make a determined act of the will to attend. That sounds bad, I know. Allow me to explain. As an introvert by nature, I enjoy spending time with people in small groups. While I know Women’s Night will be fun and good for […]
