Here in the United States, we have a “holiday” of sorts today. Halloween. The History Channel website has this as a description: “Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition.

Life is tough. Being a Christian doesn’t guarantee that your life will not have issues. James even wrote this in James 1: verses 2 & 3, “2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” Whenever is the key word here.

Yesterday my Pastor’s message really got to me. The one line that meant a lot was  “God has done something powerful in your life, share it!” Sharing your story, is sharing the gospel of peace.

No one is perfect. Romans 3:23 says, “23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” I’m totally not perfect, not EVEN close to it! God has been showing me some things in my life that are character flaws. These things are not totally bad, but they aren’t good either.  When God brings things to your attention, that …

In Exodus 20: 8-11 it says, ‚ÄúRemember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath …

I used to attend a traditional church. You know, pews, hymn books, dresses… that kind of traditional church. Well, I’d been there for 9 years, and the choir started singing a few more contemporary songs. There was one song in particular, and the youth pastor’s (at the time) wife was in the choir. She was singing and raising her hand. I …
