A Chinese proverb says, “A single conversation across the table with a wise person is worth a month’s study of books.”  Let’s be like that wise person.  We don’t have to say everything we think, and we don’t have to have the last word in every conversation.  A harsh word stirs up anger, so we […]

 Quick story:  The IRS once received a letter form an anonymous taxpayer.  It read, “I’ve cheated on my income tax for the past seven years, and tonight my conscience is troubling me to the point that I cannot sleep.  I have enclosed a $100 bill as my way of saying ‘I am sorry.’  If I […]

Okay, I’m not quite finished with celebrating our country. Thomas Jefferson authored the Declaration of Independence and served as the third president of the United States. Consider this observation about Christianity: “The Christian religion, when divested of the rags in which (the clergy) have enveloped it, and brought to the original purity and simplicity of […]

After years of research, scientists at the University of Michigan have developed the world’s smallest computer system to help treat glaucoma patients. This tiny unit, about the size of a single letter on a penny, contains a microprocessor, sensor, memory, battery, solar cell, and wireless radio with an infinitesimal antenna.

June 12th is the anniversary date of the charter of the Nor’kirk.  Forty years ago, a group of people took a leap of faith and established in God’s honor a church in the far north reaches of Carrollton.  This week, let’s think about what that anniversary means.

It’s not wise to be dogmatic as we try to interpret current events. The twists and turns of history are under God’s providential control, and its best to watch prayerfully so we can take advantage of open doors for evangelism while awaiting our Lord’s return. The ever-present turmoil among the Arab states in the Middle […]

Advertisements are the bane of our existence. Ads on TV manage to annoy and at the same time get under our skin.
