  • Bible shows it’s never too late to change

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    It’s never too late to change. Is that really true?

    Recently a friend shared about a men’s small group he was part of some years back. He said that without exception each man shared that they had tried and failed to change themselves.

    As Christians they could not figure out why? They had followed all the religious rules and world’s suggestions, but no success.

  • Stop catfishing and tell the truth about yourself

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    Have you heard of catfishing?

    Several years ago, a young guy named Nev Schulman fell in love with a woman he “met” on Facebook. She was beautiful, a musician.

    Megan sent Nev photos of herself and MP3s of her songs. They talked on the phone — and he was smitten. So, of course he wanted to meet her.

    However, when he traveled from New York to Michigan to finally meet her, he discovered that Megan was really Angela, Megan’s stepmother.

  • God allows us to find quiet in the chaos

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    “Why? Because I said so.”

    How many times in our lives have we heard those words or even uttered them ourselves?

    I wonder how many of us use these words without ever understanding what causes us to do so? That is where their significance lies.

     Many years ago as a learner, as a teacher and finally as a parent I finally decided to investigate why we use them. It all started when I first read the exchange between God and Abraham recorded in Genesis 22.

  • Will beauty be able to save the world?

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith columnist

    At my church we talk a lot about beauty.

    The ancient Greeks and the early Christians elevated three prime virtues: truth, goodness and beauty, and as Russian novelist Dostoevsky wrote, “Beauty will save the world.”

    A longing for beauty is primal. A lack of it brings despair.

  • Soldiers’ stories prove truth of life’s source

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    Last night my wife and I watched for the first time the heralded movie “Unbroken.”

    This powerful visual story brought two very significant facts to light once again for me. First, the inhumanity of man to his fellow man. Second, the power and the reality of a life changing relationship with our creator though his son, Jesus Christ.
