Pancake Day(?)

Most people may see pancakes as a delicious flat cake that we devour with some syrup, but did you know that it has some religious significance to it? Shrove Tuesday, or known as Pancake Day, uses pancakes to celebrate the last day of Carnival, Mardi Gras and preceding Lent. Pancakes are usually associated with Shrove Tuesday because it was a way for people to give up certain foods like eggs, milk, flour and sugar for Lent.

Ghanaian missionary staying in U.S. to start revival

Saul was an ordinary guy who went out to look for lost donkeys. He didn't have any expectations of being a king, nor did he set out to be king of Israel. All he wanted was to find his father's lost donkeys and go back home, but not only were the donkeys found, Saul ended up being king of Israel (1 Samuel 9:1-27; 10:1-24).

Just a thought: What will you do?

One of the greatest questions ever asked in response to hearing the Word of God… "What should we do then?" (Luke 3:10) To the believer who is already walking with God: Remember salvation is not turning over a new leaf, it is about living a new life. This affects all areas of your life - spouse, children, parents, work, giving and serving. Don't just talk about the benefits of salvation; live them. To those who are still in need of coming to Jesus - Repent! Turn from your sin and self efforts (Eph. 2:8,9) and trust in Jesus ...

Living ‘Under Grace’

"Sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14). Nearly 2000 years ago, Paul wrote that to Christians, to people he included with himself when he said, "We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life" (Romans 6:4-5).

Seeing the Bible

I had always thought of the Garden of Gethsemane as some hidden away place. My mind's eye had pictured the Palm Sunday donkey ride as rather long and stretched out. My picture of the Jordan River was more like the Mississippi River. It's not that I didn't understand what the Bible was saying. I had just attached the words of scripture to the pictures my mind developed for them over the years. But then I saw it. And the images that play in my head as I read God's Word all look a little different now.

Just a thought: Following Jesus’ growth pattern

While we don't know much of the details of Jesus's young life, we do have enough information to help us form a healthy personal growth pattern for ourselves. Luke's gospel account shows a natural progression. 2:40 Jesus is called "the child" v.43 "the boy" v.48 "Son" and v.52 "Jesus." Each of these titles shows a specific growth pattern. Luke says, "the child continued to grow…" Growth is natural, the desire to grow is a part of us. The lack of desire to grow, mature and learn shows there is a problem. If an ...

Just a thought: Time's Up!

Yup, we say it, feel it and live like it. Those times when life seems bleak, situations seem impossible, prayers seem to go unanswered for a long time and we conclude, "Time's up!" I have waited and waited but apparently God is not going to do this or that. Or, I have given this ample time (in our time frame) so, God must be saying "no."

A voice we can trust

Are you religious? Would you call yourself spiritual? Do you believe in your church? In your pastor? In your faith? How about in the Bible? Or, do you believe in Jesus?

Hand-in-hand

The tables were lit with candles and the lights were down low. The congregation processed out of the church and into the parish hall to sit down for a Middle-Eastern style meal: olives, hummus, pita and dates.

Make Jewish cuisine part of your Passover

To cook up a traditional, juicy, slow-roasted brisket for Passover, which begins Monday, April 14, it may not be known that a staple ingredient is usually ketchup, beer or Coca Cola. Passover can be summed up as a time to tell stories and eat. To tell the story of how the Hebrew slaves left Egypt in such haste they didn't have time to put yeast in their bread, scared the Pharaoh would change his mind, letting it cook on their backs into unrisen, cracker-like matzoh. To eat in celebration and symbolism of their release from slavery and the parting ...
