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. But as we grow from day to day, we understand that our struggles are simply a part of our living, and your attitude about the situation is what allows you to see the silver lining that surrounds every cloudy moment in life.

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 ...

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.

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. Surviving documents indicate that it was still in existence in A.D. 570, but it had been destroyed by the ...
