Your stories about Christ are worth telling

What’s your story? If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, odds are, at some point, you have had to give a testimony — give your life story — in front of somebody.

Pastor Tim Douglas: Times flies ...

If you’re like me, I usually would complete the statement “time flies…” with the words “when you’re having fun.” As I thought about the subject of time, and how little of it I seem to have these days, it brought me to the original intent of time.

On the path we call life, there are mountaintops, and there are valleys. Then, there are pits, and those pits sometimes are dug by us, and other times, we are thrown in by someone else.

The Rev. Bain White: Indebted to a heretic

Have you ever thought about what caused the early church to decide what works should be included in the New Testament? It is a question that has been asked of me numerous times, and surprisingly enough, I often respond by saying that the books in the New Testament that we consider to be canonical came about in part through the actions of a person determined to be a heretic.

Neil Folks: Spiritual gifts and natural abilities
