Mansfield women on a mission

"Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet." These sage and thought-provoking words are part of the mission statement of the Mansfield Women's Club. Three women - Teri Skelton, Veronica Sandberg and Rhonda Frix - formed the group in January intent on charitable service and making a difference in a sleepy little town where time appears frozen. In the way that history is chronicled in a small town, they're all relative newcomers to their Mansfield addresses, say 12-15 years or so.

Where the church divides

Over the past few weeks we have been having an important conversation on when and how churches from different theological view points should and should not join together. I have labeled three levels of theological importance. The first level of importance are those things that people must agree on in order to be labeled a Christian at all. These included a correct understanding of God, a belief in the authority of the Bible, and a conviction that salvation is found in Christ alone.

A song for the Journey

I cry out to you from the depths, Lord - my Lord, listen to my voice! Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy! If you kept track of sins, Lord - my Lord, who would stand a chance? But forgiveness is with you - that's why you are honored. I hope, Lord. My whole being hopes, and I wait for God's promise. My whole being waits for my Lord - more than the night watch waits for morning; yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!
