Are You Still Relevant?

  I have heard it said that motivation can be generated in people by offering to meet an unmet need. This maxim is true. On a recent rafting trip with our church youth group, I fell out of our raft into a set of class 4 rapids. As the current spun me around and flipped […]

Fred Heeren: Home Alone in the Universe?

Fred Heeren, “Home Alone in the Universe?” First Things (Mar 2002, No 121), pages 38-46. I always enjoy reading contemporary articles that offer fresh evidence for faith in the God of the Bible, even if such “evidence” is somewhat indirect. I found this recently in a well-written summary and critique of another “faith,” the predominantly […]

Sarah’s life tends to ricochet between Frenzy and Loneliness, with frequent stops at a place called Exhaustion. Yet Sarah has a […]

Belonging to a Local Church: A Foundation for Believers

A minister writes about the importance of significant and intentional community for followers of Jesus. Church-hopping Christians who flit from one congregation to another do have a problem—but it is not with the people they meet, as they think. It is with themselves, observes one veteran pastor who believes local church involvement is the true […]

Thoughts to Ponder: June 2002

Holiness “Progress in holiness can best be measured not by the length of time we spend in prayer, not by the number of times we go to church, not by the amount of money we contribute to God’s work, not by the range and depth of our knowledge of the Bible, but rather by the […]

Pentecost and the Inside-Out Church

Pentecost and the Inside-Out Church

  A timely reminder of the empowerment of the Spirit in our daily lives. Not long ago a young woman I’ll call Karen asked if she could talk with me about her plans for the future. I had known Karen for several years but I hadn’t seen her in a long, long time. She said […]

Being Watchful: E-Mail Hoaxes and Scams

Being Watchful: E-Mail Hoaxes and Scams

When the Holy Spirit takes a hardened heart and makes it soft and pliable, that heart becomes loving and merciful in ways not thought possible before.

Thoughts to Ponder: March 2002

“Love is the first comforter, and where love and truth speak the love will be felt where the truth is never perceived. Love indeed is the highest of all truth; and the pressure of a hand, a kiss, the caress of a child, will do more to save sometimes, than the wisest argument, even rightly […]
