  1. 23rd March 2019
  2. Ben Maddox (guest columnist)

Much has been said about what makes a winning team, whether in sports, the workplace, or even relationships.

  2. John Wheeler (guest columnist)

Although the very first Christians were Jews—many of whom continued to worship alongside their Jewish brothers until the Second Temple was destroyed in 70ad—there has been a long history of “Christian” persecution of the Jewish people.

  2. J. Davy Crockett III

Times change, and one generation’s meaningful metaphors are lost on the next. In an urban age of dizzying technological advances, Internet access, and an endless array of devices, earthy agricultural references lose their impact. This is lamentable, since life lessons are prominently symbolized by agrarian practices in the Bible. Many colorful expressions and...

  2. Roger Meyer

Many have seen the warning signs on a fence or door: “Beware of the dog.” Dogs can be vicious and dangerous, even the snippy little “ankle biters.” Did you know that the Bible warns Christians to “beware of dogs”? Many of us love our furry friends. Dogs are often called “Man’s best friend,” and they are certainly wonderful companions and servants. Dogs serve...

  1. 16th February 2019
  2. Richard Franz

When we buy something new like a cell phone, lawn mower or car there is always an owner’s manual that comes with the purchase. Not everyone makes the effort to actually read this manual.
