More Than a Worldview

Every month I receive a small check in the mail for our small Christian school from an older couple. Among my cherished acquaintances is an older woman who spends a significant portion of her waking hours praying for those whom she knows. Another friend of mine consistently shares the love of God with unsaved friends and family members. Hospitality has been shown to me by many in this congregation. All seemingly small and insignificant things. Yet here is a faith to which I aspire - a faith that works through love. It cannot be learned in books.

One Day in the Courts of the Lord

Christmas 2005 will present an opportunity for Christian families to give a positive stand for the Lord’s Day and to defend the truth of God against traditions of men. Because Christmas falls on Sunday, in the minds of many it will be the holiest day since their last correspondence. One can almost feel the magic. An early morning church service. Gifs and brunch. A yuletide extravaganza worthy of Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby. There is one problem. December 25, 2005 will be the Lord’s Day, not Christmas Day.
