Dragged

Author: Melissa Church

I’ve been reading a book lately that is way above my pay scale, but I’m plowing through. From the first chapter it has been all up in my business and I’ve had to put it aside several times while I simmer down. It has held a mirror up to a corner of my life that I thought was a non-issue. I am deeply convicted. And deeply conflicted.

Squirrel Plummet

Author: Melissa Church

Sometimes when I walk, my husband walks with me. (See my last article for how that goes. He’s a runner. He has very quick pace. Need I say more?) I walk head down, literally, because I can’t see much without my glasses and I need to concentrate! He walks head up looking around, noticing things. He often gives me the play-by-play about the morning dog party, what bird is singing, what neighbor is traveling, and yard maintenance. One thing we both notice is a squirrel plummet.

Walk Your Walk

Author: Melissa Church

I walk every morning. Every single morning. I can’t remember a day that I skipped. I will skip many things, but I dare not skip my walk or I might never get started again – a body in motion and all. I have a love hate relationship with my walk. But what I really hate about the walk is when there are other people out walking at the same time.

Life and Death- Part 2

Author: Brady Stephenson

Last month, we pondered life and death from a Biblical perspective… but there were some lingering questions about the “neshamah” G-d breathed into Adam.

The Hebrew language has two words (neshamah and nephesh) that are translated as “soul” in English and both of these are distinct from “spirit” (ruach).

The Bible speaks a lot about false teachers.  The Lord gives us ways to spot them, but here’s a more recent one you may not have considered.

Termite Infestation

Author: Melissa Church

I’ve been – is meditating too New Age to say – ruminating on my last article and the fact that I believe it’s truth but I still can’t do it effectively. I’m trying. I’m really determined to let God accomplish some things in me, and that’s a biggie.
