  • Love for each other matters more than size of church

    By Nancy Kennedy, Guest columnist

    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.

    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores — run down, weather worn.

    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.

    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.

  • All is not lost, even during the worst of times

    By Nancy Kennedy

    Tachycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all — and I had all three recently.

    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.

    I lost my camera.

    And by “my camera” I mean the one the newspaper I work for gave me to use and not mine to keep.

  • Here’s how a relationship with Christ gives new life

    By Larry Coleman

    Faith Columnist

    We should realize based on our definition of faith that true Christianity is not a religion. The creator didn’t initiate a religion when he breathed his life into the first man. That is why the “ian” at the end of the word Christian is so important to understand.

    It means to be characterized by, in this case a person Christ.

    If you call yourself a Christian you are telling others that you are not religious, but that you have a living relationship with a person.

  • Make it God’s best year in your life

    Happy New Year! There is something special about the beginning of a new year and all the possibilities it contains.

    Many will make resolutions for weight loss, better budgeting of money, opening their own business, going back to school, or finally cleaning out that one closet that plagues the entire house. However, of all the things on our proverbial list to accomplish, I pray a better relationship with Christ, takes priority.

  • Christians are characterized by Christ, not the world

    Christians are characterized by Christ, not the world

    If, as Joseph revealed in Genesis 41:6, the Christian life “Is not in me,” then who does the scripture reveal the Christian life resides within?
