Church, where are you?

Growing up in church has given me a unique perspective on walking the Christian walk. I've had opportunities to share the room with gifted men and women of God. Generally, as pastors and parishioners, we're able to quote scripture dealing with the "fruits of the spirit" - love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, faith, etc. However, we all know that quoting scripture and actually practicing what you preach are two separate things.

Balance life's ups and downs

Another day up, another day down. Let's look at life one day at a time. Yes, we all have a calendar full of appointments and events. But we must slow down and thank God for letting us live one day at a time. We won't live forever, so it's important to be grateful for every hour and every day.

Archaeology and the boyhood of Jesus in Nazareth

The impressive Roman Catholic Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth was dedicated in 1969 and is among the most beautiful churches in the Holy Land. It stands on the site of an earlier Crusader-era sanctuary that had been built near the beginning of the 12th century and was destroyed roughly 150 years later. And that church, in turn, had been built on the ruins of a shrine commissioned by the Emperor Constantine in the first part of the fourth century.
