Most people try to avoid prickly situations. You know, those awkward, uncomfortable moments when one says or does the wrong thing, which is embarrassing for all concerned. The customs and procedures most people consider “good manners” resulted from the need to have standards of social conduct that govern courteous, considerate human interaction.


Why Society is Deeply Divided

  2. Roger Meyer

News articles discuss the deep divides in societies the world over. Whether the division occurs in politics, education, religion, or culture, every side has strong proponents and equally strong opponents. Why are people so deeply divided? And is there a solution? Divisions are as old as mankind. Disagreements about who the leader should be, who has water and...


Offline to Reality?

I still remember once seeing a cartoon that summed up an interesting trend in Western society. It showed four children playing on a park bench with their tablets and devices, with a desolate playground in the background. The caption read, “children playing.” This satire illustrates a stark and troubling phenomenon. In our desire to virtually connect through...


Lessons from My Grandfather's Cistern

When I was a child, my family frequently visited my grandparents’ home. Each time we did, my grandfather would have some task for us to do. My brothers and I never really minded the work, though, because he would always make it fun and teach us something deeper in the process. I cannot even count the number of projects we worked on together, but each of them are...


As the Twig is Bent

What do raising children and gardening have in common? Isn’t it obvious? They each require time, patience and loving care—but believe me, the rewards are far above material payoffs!


Can You Imagine?

  2. Shane Browning (guest columnist)

“I Can Only Imagine” is the best selling Christian single of all time. Since the song’s original release in 1999, it has sold over 200 million copies. With a boost from the movie telling the origins of the song, starring Michael Finley as Bart Millard (the song’s writer and singer) and Dennis Quaid as Bart’s father, it has now sold in excess of three million...


Wars and rumors of wars

War. It's an ugly word. It denotes death and destruction, pain and suffering, ruination and devastation. Every year it affects tens of millions of human beings. Will it ever end?


The Weight of the Bible

  2. Marc Arseneault

What is the difference between most of modern "Christianity" and the teachings of the Bible? The answer may be very surprising, but a short analogy comparing the Bible to a real conundrum concerning weights and measurements may help you understand.


Marriage Versus Cohabitation

When I was a child in the 1950s, I remember the shocked look on my mother's face when she heard the news of a neighorhood couple who were getting a divorce. Divorce wasn't so common back then—at least not in the rural Midwest where we lived. And a man and woman didn't live together unless they were married, or if they did, they were shamed and shunned.


Expect a Miracle

One of the favorite themes of literature is deliverance. We are thrilled by stories of daring and bravery, as one person or groups of people or whole armies are rescued, delivered from harm's way, sometimes at the last moment with great risk of danger.
