Whose Slave Are You?

Slavery has been a part of human society and in different cultures for thousands of years.  We readily recall the enslavement  of Israel in Egypt, and how God used Moses to deliver them out of bondage.

“No man is an island.” This saying reflects the truth that we are all interconnected. No man can truly succeed when isolated from others; we depend on one another. There’s no place, culture, race or people better than another. It takes the sum of all to make up the human race. Obviously, we are currently […]

How would you describe yourself? Are you someone with broad knowledge or narrow focus? Do you draw on a wide variety of experiences with no centralizing concept to pull everything together?

Our society talks, sings and writes about peace, but has so little of it. It’s as if we live in a dream world, and to affirm this dream, a well known biblical phrase is heralded across the airwaves and from Church pulpits at Christmas. I’m sure you know the phrase: “Glory to God in the […]

Have you ever known an individual who on the surface seemed shy, modest, and ordinary, but behind it all was the most loving, gracious person you’ve ever met?

It is God’s intention that every generation recognize the timelessness of the Bible.
