    What a bad rap God’s Law has been given. All those “thou shalts" and "thou shalt nots”—nothing but negativity!

    God, Unmistakable
    In one form or another we’ve all said it, or at least thought it: “How can a loving God allow that?” There are so many ways in which we think we can call God to account for what he does, or doesn’t do…

    Impossibly Holy
    Now it’s one thing to believe that God is holy (most religions don’t), but it’s quite another when this holy God expects us to be holy, too.

    Got Faith?
    Our world today is post-modern, post-Christian, and post just about everything else we used to regard as common ground. In conversation now, we find ourselves spending three-quarters of an hour defining each word and struggling to find some shared understanding, or shrugging it all off in frustration with a "whatever!"

    Do you remember the old R.E.M. classic “Losing My Religion?” I’m sure the group never intended it to say anything about religion or even about Christian faith. I’m even more…

    What is a Christian?
    What is a real Christian? Is it someone who is just not "bad" -- the classic Good Person or Nice Guy? I don't think so. If we take Jesus and…

  • How Gaza’s Christians View the Hamas-Israeli Conflict
    Baptist pastor Hanna Massad speaks openly about what he sees happening as he helps to shelter Gaza’s Christians and others during the current conflict. The summer of violence in Gaza and Israel on Tuesday entered its fifth week after rockets, fired from inside Gaza, broke the latest ceasefire. After the attack, Israel recalled its negotiators from peace talk […]

  • The Midlife Church Crisis
    In Christ, there is neither empty nester nor new mom. A while ago, my husband and I went to a newcomers’ luncheon at a church we were considering attending. We watched as church staff, almost all in their early- to mid-30s, schmoozed with the young families. While I recognize the demands at these types of events, only one staff member connected with the newc […]

  • Slow and Steady Builds the Church
    Slick programs and efficient business models are no substitute for the patient work of discipleship. I visited a church down South recently that left me starved and speechless.
