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.

Kwanzaa: Honoring community

It was during the peak of the civil rights movement that the cultural holiday of Kwanza was born. Unlike other similar holidays such as Hanukah and Christmas, Kwanzaa is not based upon religious association. This holiday was created to celebrate the life and the heritage of African culture seen in African and Pan African communities around the world.

Celebrating the Festival of Lights

The Jewish celebration of Hanukah is often associated with the Christian holiday of Christmas, but that association has little to do with the significance of each holiday and more to do with the timing. Each is celebrated at the end of the year when the holiday season has hit full swing. But much like the story of Christmas, the story of Hanukah is a rich one.

Love speaks passionately

"What would you do-oo-oo for a Klondike bar?" Have you seen the ads? The guy challenged to listen to his wife instead of looking at the big game on the TV...and then a wife had to actually choose to go see an action movie. The ice cream had better be good, right?

Elvis’ Bible

Elvis Presley's bible sold at a U.K. auction last week for a prodigious $94,600. The Bible was given to Elvis on his first Christmas at Graceland in 1957. He used the Bible until his death on Aug. 16, 1977. The Bible was only expected to sell for around $40,000 but interests peaked in the old Bible because of the many notes and marks made by the famous singer. These notes tell a lot about Elvis' faith and interaction with God.

Burnham: Losing your worship

Have you ever lost something under the sofa? You know that feeling you get when you drop something and it rolls (almost as if in slow motion) right up under there? Down we go scrambling on our hands and knees (with a flashlight or broom handle) in search of that lost item. Oh, I wish God's people would go in search of their worship that way.

You may say, "My worship isn't lost, I go to church." But that's the point. So many have lost their worship and don't even realize it. We go to church ...

Overcoming life’s hurts

One thing the world seems unlikely to ever run out of is broken people. And as long as they exist, there will be a need for Celebrate Recovery, the Christian answer to the 12-step program.

The Christian-based addiction recovery program, created by pastors John Baker and Rick Warren of the popular Saddleback Church, uses the eight beatitudes ("Happy are the...") to help people get over life's "hurts, habits and hang-ups."
