Connected in Community

by David Ivarson

God did not create us to live without the influences of biblical community in our lives. We lie to ourselves by saying that we are the reason that bad stuff is happening so we must deal with this alone. We lie to ourselves by saying that no one else would ever understand what we are going […]

A Threefold Cord

by Chandalee Chrisman

It’s About Time

by Gary Jared

The Christian Worldview on Sex and Marriage

by Gary Jared

Sex.  It is one of the best gifts that God has given mankind.  After creating the world and all that is in it, He created male and female and said, “For this cause, a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and they shall be one flesh.”  Then he told […]

Perspectives

by Brian Smith

I heard a radio interview recently while sitting in traffic.  The interview was with a young mother of six children.  Having caught the interview midstream, I soon discovered that the conversation revolved around how she balanced such a full and busy life of being a wife and mother, filling a role of ministry leadership in […]
