The Attitude of a Believer

There are so many people, places and stories that one could analyze regarding the attitude of a believer, yet this carefully chosen prophet provides a fantastic example through his testimony of following God's will with an imperfect attitude.

Practice Makes…A Life!

It happens every year. A few hundred 19-and-20-year-olds make the transition from student to graduate at Oxford College. While this is not the end of the road for them as almost all of them continue on to the Atlanta campus of Emory University for their junior and senior year of college, this is an important event in their life. So, we do what you do when a significant life moment takes place – we mark it with rituals.

Take a moment to take a look

I love to watch people. We are super interesting. In the past few years people-watching has not been as entertaining as it used to be. The reason is technology. I am not bashing technology at all. I use it daily. I am typing this – I don't turn in my articles handwritten. I am talking about how we no longer interact with one another.

Simple Directions

In my elementary years, when it is was time for the rambunctious class to put together a notebook with correctly labeled dividers, or to create something artsy out of paper following a list of instructions, I was bound to be the last one finished … and I never did it right. It wasn't out of rebellion or laziness, I simply couldn't follow directions.

Living Sacrifice

Romans 12:1-2 says,"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."

Discipline makes a difference

As a child, the fear of being caught breaking a rule was more inherent to me as morality. When I was faced with an opportunity to make a bad decision, the thought running through my mind was "what if dad found out".

Praying Means Paying Attention

I just completed a four year term on Oxford's city council. It was something I never thought I would do. My name is Lyn Pace, and I'm an ordained United Methodist minister from South Carolina and college chaplain at Oxford College of Emory University.

Stop holding on to your hurt and pride

Sometimes when I preach, I will write a sermon and never use it. God will change what I preach about at, what seems like, the last minute. This article is very much in that category. I had an article about Pontius Pilate and his role in the crucifixion. I thought it was a good article, a nice follow up to the Easter message. Apparently, it wasn't what I needed to write about. Maybe you will read it in the future, maybe you won't. I just want you to know where this is coming from. I want you know ...

Be a disciple

The disciples may not have comprehended much of what Jesus was saying around the table during the last Passover meal together, but they heard one thing and were, according to Mark's gospel, very grieved by it: "But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table." (Lk 22:21)
