Get a new attitude for the new year

For many of us, this past year has been a struggle. We've struggled to keep our families together, we've struggled to pay our bills and we've struggled to find happiness in the middle of our storms.

Keep the spirit of Christmas going

The holiday season is almost over and we are getting ready to begin a new year. During Thanksgiving and Christmas, attitudes around the world change. People become more caring and loving than at any other time of the year. Churches and organizations give out food baskets and help those who are going through difficult times. However, when the season ends, most folks revert back to their regular routines until the holiday season comes along again. Unfortunately, many people remain in need all year long. Many will still be unemployed. Many will still be homeless. Many will still be struggling and ...

It is more blessed to give than receive

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends. Often, caught up in the hype of gift-giving, we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day that we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Putting disappointment in perspective

At this time of year a person gets used to traveling down certain roads and looking for Christmas lights. Some people consistently light up their homes or lawns with these beautiful displays. This year I have noticed that some such displays are missing – my guess is that it could be because of the economy.

Passover: An ancient and modern celebration

In several weeks, the Jewish community from around the world will celebrate the commencement of Passover, one of the oldest of the Jewish festivals. The celebration is held to honor God and remember His deliverance of the Israelites from the Egyptian pharaoh after 400 years of slavery. Pharaoh refused to free the Israelites, and God sent ten plagues to humble the Egyptians. The term “Passover” derives from the last plague, the night the destroying angel “passed over” all the doors that had been coated with lamb’s blood, thereby protecting the first-born sons inside. It comes from the Hebrew word ...
