The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled


Posted By on Apr 1, 2017

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by. Robert Frost describes in poetry the simple decisions we must make each day, with very little certainty as to where each pathway leads. Science leads us to view our world in terms of causality, and the physics of quantum mechanics demonstrates a contentedness in the universe yet fully understood. The TV series Touch pushes this concept further in the name of science...

Becoming a Contagious Christian

Becoming a Contagious Christian


Posted By on Jan 19, 2017

What is it about verbalizing our faith that leaves our knees knocking and our tongues tied? We know it’s the most significant thing we can do and that sharing it is the most important gift we could ever give to a friend. Yet evangelism remains one of the most frustrating parts of the Christian life. Until now. Bill Hybels and Mark Mittelberg believe that it doesn’t have to be that way; effectively communicating our faith...

The word Christmas is a shortened version of Christ Mass – the traditional worship service associated with Christ’s birth instituted by the Catholic church. Since then, Christmas has remained an annual recognition by almost all denominations. But let us remember, the earliest...
