  • Become extensions of a father’s love

    Thanksgiving is Thursday. As you read these three words, you may be doing so in the comfort of your home, which is beginning to be filled with not only family but also the aroma of Thursday’s feast bellowing through the atmosphere. Children are playing with siblings and cousins. Teenagers are merrily scrolling through apps on their phone and sending Snapchats to all of their friends. Thanksgiving Day represents a time of fullness, love, and special moments, but not for everyone.

  • What does it mean to have faith?

    It seems appropriate since this is a faith column to begin with the question, what is faith?

    Faith is something that every human being lives by whether they are an unbeliever, believing-unbeliever or believer. However, often when it comes to defining or explaining the meaning of faith, things get a bit hazy.

    About a year ago, I was presenting to a group of men. I told them that I had observed all of them walk into the meeting and my conclusion was that they were all men of faith.

  • Dad’s death fosters deeper trust in God

    The article I wrote for last week’s edition of The Anderson News told of my dad’s quiet battle with cancer and his testimony to the enduring grace of God in his life. Ironically, that was also the day I preached at his funeral. On Saturday, Oct. 11, my dad lost his six-year battle with cancer. We laid his body to rest last Wednesday, the day this paper ran that article wherein I wrote about the faith with which he faced his cancer, and his trust in the God who was the source and object of his faith.

  • God says wives much more than mere ‘gifts’

    By Larry Coleman

    Guest Columnist

    The following is in response to faith columnist’s Brian Owens’ column titled “Husbands should treat wives as gifts from God,’ which appeared in the Sept. 24 edition of The Anderson News.

    I found this article quite challenging, to say the least. It is for sure a very positive view of wives, which is most needed these days. However, the account found in the scriptures reveals that our creator, God, presents a far greater view of “wives/women” than as mere gifts.
