  • "My Time Of Sadness Became A Time Of Miracles"

    "My Time Of Sadness Became A Time Of Miracles"

    It was mid-November. Charles had been sick for a week or 2 and the people that come to our house to regulate his blood thinners couldn't get his blood thickness on the right level. It went from thick to thin in a day or 2, so they insisted that the family doctor would do something. Finally she came and got his blood tested for inflammation amongst other things. The next day we got a call from her that those (inflammation) numbers, which were allowed to be around 8, in his case were 172. She had...

  • Yes, They Spent The Night With Us

    Yes, They Spent The Night With Us

    One cold October Sunday night in the late 1970’s, we started home from church and remembered that we had to make a quick stop at the grocery store. A couple of our children went in with me and the other two chose to stay in the warm car with Bill. We hurried in and out with whatever few items we needed and as we were getting back into the car, Bill said, “Can you think of any good reason that a couple with a child would get into a church bus parked beside that church over there?” I turned and...

  • The Testimony of a Rock and Roll Child

    The Testimony of a Rock and Roll Child

    Introduction Many Christians are of the opinion that the longer a person puts off coming to Christ the less likely it becomes of their ever doing so and I'm among them. I also believe that Christians who convert relatively late in life may be required to pay a far higher price for the follies of their pre-Christian existence than more youthful converts, especially if these include alcohol, drugs, fornication, and involvement in the occult. God can and does heal Christians damaged by

  • Is the U.S. still a Nation Under God?

    Is the U.S. still a Nation Under God?

    As same-gender marriage gains momentum in the United States, and more people begin to accept the idea of these unions as a matter of civil liberty, the issue is being discussed more frequently. As with abortion, the topic of homosexuality and same-gender marriage will continue to be an emotionally-charged, controversial, and divisive issue—even among Christians. From a Biblical standpoint, any type of "marriage" between people of the same gender is as wrong and contrary to the natural order of th...

  • The Teacher Trumps The Who

    The Teacher Trumps The Who

    I really love the song “Eminence Front” by The Who. Great sound. Great lyrics. Eminence Front is about the futility of life and putting on a façade (an “eminence front” that is a “put on”) to try to avoid the reality of things. I think Pete Townshend and The Who were talking about the rich and famous in particular, but I also believe the story can apply to all people. The eminence front or façade talked about in the song is set up by having a good time: the sun shines (and people forget), th...

    Mr. Key At The Dry Cleaners, A SPECIAL TRUE CHRISTMAS STORY...

    It was unusually cold for November that year in East Tennessee. The normal weather pattern for years had been that we could expect snow any time after the first week of January, but this year it had turned colder than normal in October and by the end of the second week of November we were getting snow that made the roads hazardous. On this day I had considered staying home from work, but school was not called off so I went on to work as scheduled. ...

  • The Man Who Came from Contact for Christ

    The Man Who Came from Contact for Christ

    Sometime in early 1993, while still attending meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, I received a call from a man who told me he was from an organisation by the name of Contact for Christ based in the South London suburb of Selsdon near Croydon in Surrey. He'd got in touch with me in consequence of a card I'd filled in on a British Rail train some months previously. I tried to put him off as I recall but somehow he got round me and before I knew it, he was at my door, a neat, dapper man called Denver...

  • Camp-meeting Memories

    Camp-meeting Memories

    Camp-meeting Memories The anticipation and excitement of an upcoming Camp-meeting holds different meanings to different people. People may have a specific need they plan to take to the Lord that week. Some are looking for a closer walk with the Lord. Others may just be looking for a week spent with the Lord. Still others, go simply for the fellowship with other believers. Regardless of their reasons for going, campers leave Camp-meeting with memories that stay with them a lifetime. Getting the c...

  • As a Little Child

    As a Little Child

    And they were bringing children to Him so that He might lay hands on them; and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. "Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all." (Mark 10:13-15) What did Jesus mean by this? What are the qualities and attributes children possess that God expects...

  • Same sex marriage

    Same sex marriage

    For a long time, debates--often heated and emotional, have addressed the issue of same sex marriage, and whether gay couples should be afforded the same legitimacy under law as married heterosexual couples. I do not understand the importance and sense of urgency lavished upon it --either by individuals or the Obama administration. Given the high priority our President has given Gay Rights, it seems that even the dark, impending economic disaster now overshadowing this country has taken a back...
