What's New?

rAm I Selfish?
By Theo Stringer
Whether we want to admit it or not; "most of us are self-centered more or less to some degree." We see ourselves as the center of our own universe. However the problem is; "we are not the sun and we surely are not God." Those of us who have received this revelation have realized that only Jesus is the answer to life. Our focus then was on Jesus instead of ourselves, and thus we accepted Him as our Lord and Savior. <more...>

The Central Fact
by Ted Schroder
The reason Easter Sunday is celebrated is because of the belief that Jesus Christ, after his death and burial in the tomb, rose from the dead, bodily, on the third day. Christianity is completely dependent on that being the central fact of history. Easter is not based on a nature myth of rebirth after the death of winter. The world celebrated that cycle of nature before Christ. Easter celebrates something quite different. The desire for new life, the hope for eternal life, the longing for immortality, which filled every human heart, was finally fulfilled in the historical resurrection of Jesus Christ. <more...>

p Sharing Your Faith
By Karen Wolff
There's nothing worse than somebody trying to preach to you about something going on in your life when all you can think about is finding a way to make it right. At that moment, the last thing you want to see is somebody carrying a Bible, acting like they know exactly what you need and how you feel. And truth be told, when they ask you to read from their Bible, you're thinking you'd rather hit them over the head with it! <more...>

p What Do You Know About the Cross?
by Ted Schroder
One of the biggest differences between Islam and Christianity is the Cross of Christ. The Koran denies that Jesus died upon the Cross. Instead it teaches that God rescued Jesus before death and took him up to heaven. Who then died upon the Cross? One of the most common explanations given by Muslims is that Judas took the place of Jesus! But the fact that Jesus died upon the Cross for our sins is central to Christianity. Why is this so?  <more...>

rpSummer Storms
By Nancy Quinn
Iowa has its share of interesting weather. And as I grew up, the tornado sirens were a natural and expected part of my life. As soon as the sky grew dark and the sirens sounded, my sister and I would gather our treasured possessions and head to the basement. My mom would carry the radio downstairs and my dad would go outside to watch the sky. I knew it was really serious when my dad would carry the mattress out of the storage area and we'd sit under it to protect ourselves in the event of flying glass if the basement windows broke. <more...>

rpHave you Heard?
By Nancy Quinn
"Did you hear what happened to Mindy's son? He was caught smoking marijuana outside the grocery store. I heard the police are sending him to Juvenile Hall. I knew he was trouble. Have you seen how long his parents allow him to wear his hair?" <more...>

rpHugs from Heaven
By Nancy Quinn
Ah, finally a relaxing day off. We were at our campsite and decided to treat ourselves with a trip to the store for ice cream. At the bottom of the hill, I noticed the massive garbage truck just backing out of the campsite and groaned. "What?" my husband asked and I remembered that I left the open bag of garbage sitting on the floor of the camper. With our two golden retrievers basking in the breezes of the air conditioned camper while we were gone <more...>

rpThe Perfected Art of Complaining
by Karen Wolff
When people talk about the national past time in the United States, they discuss baseball or some other sport. But I believe it is complaining. There is nothing more destructive or paralyzing, but yet you would be very hard pressed to find a handful of people in your own life who do not complain regularly. Why is that? <more...>

rpStory About Buying Land
by Carl Caton
I fell in love at thirteen. And no, it wasn't a girl. I can't really explain why. Maybe I fell out of a tree or something. But for some strange reason, I became enamored with land. Yes, dirt. <more...>

Life as a Journey Series - Part 2
Where Are You Now?

by Ted Schroder
When you visit a mall, or a park, or a complex, where you havenít been before, the site map can save you a great deal of time trying to find your destination. Critical to understanding the map is your present location. You look for the magic words: YOU ARE HERE, and the arrow that identifies the spot on which you stand.  <more...>

A Mother's "Yes" 
by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur
This week we celebrate the Annunciation, moved from its usual commemoration on March 25th to March 31st due to our extraordinarily early Easter. To reflect on Mary's visit from the angel Gabriel is to reflect on the power of a mother's "yes." She was a young woman who had no idea where her "yes" would lead her. She could not envision <more...>

rpLetting our Children see us Pray 
by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur
I try to get up early on school days to say my morning prayers and read my Bible before the kids get up. There is a practical reason for that - there simply isn't time to fit in my prayers in the 45 minutes between the time I get the kids up and the time that we leave the house. There is also a spiritual reason - it is much easier to be focused on God without my kids interrupting every few minutes. <more...>

pReflections of the Cross
By Chris Surber
When I was a kid growing up in Northern California, one of my favorite places to visit was Mirror Lake in Yosemite Valley. Mirror Lake gets its name from the fact that from the right perspective and during the right time of year, it proudly displays a spectacular reflection of Mt. Watkins. The mountain is flawlessly reflected in the lake! In the Gospel of Mathew, Jesus admonishes us to let the light of the love of God which is inside of us shine so that others will see it and give glory to God. <more...>
