    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 5/8/22 | Chuck Ness
    When asked by His disciples to teach them how to pray as John's disciples prayed, Jesus gave them this prayer as a model."Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13Throughout His ministry in the World, Jesus was always pointing us to...

    Washington — GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said Sunday he "would love" for former Vice President Mike Pence to voluntarily appear before the House select committee investigating the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol. Pence played a crucial role in the congressional proceedings on January 6, rebuffing pressure by then-President Donald Trump to reject electoral votes from key battleground states he lost and ultimately reaffirming President Biden's win. While some of his aides have answered questions from House investigators, Pence has not done so.
  • A Troubling Question About Jesus' Teaching: Should we love our enemies even during a time of war?

    Christian Post ^ | 04/21/2022 | Dr. Michael Brown
    Recently, some Christians in Ukraine came under fire for putting up billboards in their city with verses from the Bible, one of which quoted the words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount where He called us to love our enemies (see Matthew 5:43-48). As a result, these Christians have been branded separatists and traitors, with some calling for their church to be investigated. But was Jesus referring to situations like this when He called us to love our enemies? Are we to love those who ruthlessly bomb our families? Are we to love those who rape our women...

    Some say it's sad that the flowers wither. I say it's a good thing. Flowers are a kind of reminder, a timer for our love. By the time they fade it's a reminder it's time to say "I love you" again.

    Former President Donald Trump’s niece Mary Trump said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Alex Witt Reports” that her uncle has no idea “what it feels like to love somebody or to be loved.” Referencing remarks the former president made at a rally, Witt asked, “So what did you make of listening to your uncle say that if he could, he would have done more to make sure that National Guard troops were deployed on January 6. What was your reaction to that?”
  • I Love You But I’m Not IN LOVE With You

    If your spouse says to you, “I love you but I’m not IN love with you anymore” … OUCH! You are experiencing a big OUCH to the Nth degree! Even if you’ve said those words to your spouse, I say OUCH! Those words cause a lot of pain to a lot of spouses. And it causes a lot of pain and huge upsets to a lot of families. When those words are given, you are either the giver or the receiver of that pain. Either way there are horribly hurt feelings that are involved! Tragically, that phrase of loving, but...

    Old School ^ | 12/7/21 | Patrick Rooney
    I must confess that I have often doubted that Jesus could somehow relate to us. I mean–with my “descent into Hell” as I’ve described–how could he relate to THAT? …Of course, he did descend into Hell, didn’t he? So he certainly knows what Hell is like! But more to the point, Jesus did not sin, so how could he relate to the sinner? All this has been on my mind for some time. A few days ago, I was reading the Bible and saw the passage where–on the night of his betrayal–Jesus took his disciples to the garden so that...

    Grace Lutheran Church, De Soto, Missouri ^ | December 3, 2021 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “We Grieve, and We Have Hope” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) In the Epistle reading we heard a few minutes ago, Paul says he writes to the Thessalonians “that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.” Did you catch that? “That you may not grieve”? Does that mean that Christians are not supposed to grieve? That if you grieve, it must mean that your faith is lacking, because of course we Christians should be above grieving? Does it mean that? No, by no means! It’s not saying that Christians cannot grieve. No, we’re human, we have emotions, we...

I understand that she is at a point where she may not understand this message, but I am sending it anyway, for her, and with the hope that any lessons learned here can help the reader too. If Suz is unable to hear this message, I hope that someone reads it to her. Perhaps my niece Lisa can. I understand Lisa has essentially put her life on hold to care for her mother at this time. This is so admirable. Thank you, Lisa! Suz is well...
  • McConnell sends ‘lots of love’ to Dems Sinema, Manchin over $3.5T spending blockade

    NY Post ^ | 09/08/2021 | Juliegrace Brufke
    With apologies to New Order, this is a bizarre “love” triangle. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he and the rest of the chamber’s Republicans have “lots of love” for a pair of Democrats — Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.). That’s because the pair of moderates have pushed back on their fellow Democrats’ plans to push through Congress President Biden’s $3.5 trillion social spending package. “It’s called a reconciliation process that can be done with a simple majority, but [for] a simple majority of the Senate, you’ve got to get every single Democrat, plus the Vice...

    With most babies now protected, pregnancy centers step up to take care of mothers On a busy Tuesday at the Fifth Ward Pregnancy Help Center in Houston, a young woman burst into the lobby holding up a picture of the abortion pill on her phone. Screaming and crying with tears streaming down her face, she demanded, “I want this! Give me this!” The flustered staff ushered her into the conference room with the center’s executive director, Shayla Gaitor, who sat down across from her at the table and asked her what was wrong. As the woman vented, she slammed her...

    Old School ^ | 8/17/21 | Patrick Rooney
    My mother was a hypocrite. She wasn’t a bad person. God knows she did her best with what she was given, but nevertheless, she was a hypocrite. I harbored hatred in my heart toward her because of that, and displayed it in my speech and actions. To this day, I still see that I am not yet over my hatred for hypocrites. It appears I’ve transferred my hatred of my mother to hypocrites I see and know. I say it knowing full well that no grown man should hate his mother or hate anyone, for that matter. I’m certainly not...

    Replacing babies with pets stifles a person’s capacity to give and receive love, as it wrongly directs our greatest earthly affections toward ourselves.In a recent Fox News piece, sociologist Andrea Laurent-Simpson writes of the emergence of “multispecies families,” explaining that in “child-free families…dogs and cats paw in to fill a longing to nurture” and would-be grandparents “readily shift over to spoiling the granddog as their daughters and sons choose instead to pursue lucrative careers.” But this is neither good nor new.The ancient historian Plutarch began his life of Pericles with an anecdote about Caesar, who, upon seeing “wealthy foreigners in...
