    Running Away From My Church Blog ^ | 2/23/2018 | Robert Messner
    I am currently in the midst of a fiery trial. The events of the past six months have tested my faith like never before. I had always heard about people going through storms like this one; I just never realized how bad it could get. Thanks be to God, all is not lost. I am not lost. The wind and the waves are finally abating. And I am thankful for the many valuable lessons I have learned throughout the ordeal. One of these important lessons has been on the importance of silence. Have you ever tried being silent for a...

    Catholic Herald ^ | Oct 2017 | Stephen Bullivant
    Since at least the 1960s swathes of the Western world have witnessed unprecedented religious change and (for the most part) decline. We have simultaneously witnessed a series of social and cultural revolutions, most recently the technological and media revolution driven by the internet. That alone has profoundly changed the way people think and act... This new evangelisation requires that we (and I mean all Christians) are embarking on a centuries-long endeavour. And given this, we need to approach it in the right frame of mind, fortified with a spirituality of patience and perseverance. While we tend to think of...

None of the crimes he committed shall be remembered against him;he shall live because of the virtue he has practiced. Do I indeed derive any pleasure from the death of the wicked?says the Lord GOD. Do I not rather rejoice when he turns from his evil waythat he may...

"YHVH Machsi - The LORD My Refuge" During Hurricane Katrina, there were some who objected to the term "REFUGEE" for those who were seeking shelter. Nowadays, there is a new group of people who call themselves "Refugees" but are not. Perhaps they are "Migrants", or even "Invaders", but they are not "people seeking refuge"....
  • Analyzing Unanswered Prayer (Protestant/Evangelical Devotional)

    02/21/2018 5:50:02 AM PST · by Gamecock · 11 replies
    Our prayers are sometimes not answered because we pray in vague generalities. When all our prayers are either vague or universal in their scope, it is difficult to experience the exhilaration that goes with clear and obvious answers to prayer. If we ask God to bless everyone in the world or forgive everyone in town, it would be difficult to see the prayer answered in any concrete way. Not that it is wrong to have a large scope of interest in prayer, but if all prayer is given to such generality, then no prayer will have specific and concrete application....

    On Presidents’ Day We Should Remember That Washington and Lincoln Often Called us to Prayer Msgr. Charles Pope • February 18, 2018 • We live in a secular age. Religious utterances by government officials are greeted with surprise or even indignation by some. While the primary role of civil leaders is not a religious one, insisting that never express religious sentiment is a form of extremism rooted in exaggerated conception of the idea of the separation of Church and State. In fact, “separation of Church and State” appears nowhere in the United States Constitution.On Presidents’ Day we do well...
