Adhere to a few 'absolutes'

I am excited about freedom. This weekend we join Americans around the world in celebrating our country's 233rd birthday. The founding fathers came to America many years ago in search of freedom and opportunity. Then, one day, they gathered and signed the Declaration of Independence. What a day that must have been!

God said, "Let us; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; make man in our own image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." Genesis 1:2

More than one way to look at something

I am excited about an upcoming revival. Some time ago, my wife and I were in a local department store when she insisted on buying a tree that looked dead.

Sticks and stones

The Bible says, in Proverbs 18:21, "the power of life and death is in the tongue." I can remember being told, as a little boy in the third grade, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish much. I was an African-American child living in the Deep South. I had six siblings and a public education that ranked amongst the worst in the country. We drove around in an old station wagon. My family was poor financially, but rich spiritually and, as I grew older, I found out that I was not alone.

Often, the first impression we get of a person or place is a lasting impression. Whether it is walking into a church's office or placing a telephone call to a church, the first person you encounter is usually an administrative staffer. These "frontline soldiers" are charged with ensuring the office is run effectively and efficiently while making visitors or callers feel comfortable.
