'The Mighty Midget'

We may not be what we say we are, but what we say is what we really are! Sounds like a lot of double talk, but there is a bit of truth in this statement. James Chapter three almost exclusively deals with one of the most practical issues of life...

 

Reaching for the Star

Before we leave the wonder of Christmas behind us for another year, I’d like us to think one more time about the Wise Men who followed the star to the Christ-child.   An early leader of the Christian church, Pope Leo the Great, once wrote this,...

Bethlehem Speaks

We are in Christmas Season. We know that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. The name ‘Bethlehem’ means ‘the house of bread’. It is no wonder then that two thousand years ago, the man who was to become the bread for the world was born in that place....
