What is Truth worth?

We have been exploring the concept of truth and where it derives from, and I have made the comment in the worship services, "How True is Truth?" Now, on the surface, that is a pretty silly comment. If something is true it is true. If it is not true, it is not true. Period.The point behind asking that is to call us to examine our faith and the depths of our beliefs. Mayb...

How to Stop Time

Have you ever noticed thatthe world never offers to slow itself down for you to catch your breath? I have. The world is always more than happy to pile more junk on me to get done but rarely offers help and assistance in actually completing the tasks. There is always one more worry, one more opportunity, one more stressor, one more 'thing'.There are so many times I thi...

What is "Providence" and Why Does it Matter?

"Providence" is a marvelousword. The problem is that no one really knows what it means and why it matters. Sometimes people use the term "providence" to mean God Himself. For example, when George Washington experiencedGod's protection during General Braddock's defeat at the Battle of the Monongahela(near modern-day Pittsburgh)in 1755 he wroteto his brother, John A.
