  • A Sand Spring ‘Christmas Homecoming’
  • Santa shouldn’t get equal billing to Jesus

    In light of the events of last week, I intended to address the controversy surrounding Duck Commander founder and Robertson family patriarch, Phil Robertson.
    But seeing as how it is Christmas Eve, I have opted to put that off a week and instead write about another bearded Christian who took a stand for biblical truth and had a desire for sinners to be reconciled to God through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
    No, I am not talking about Santa Claus, per se; I am referring to St. Nicholas of Myra.

  • Reality of evil most obvious lesson from Newtown

    On Dec. 14, 2012, we watched the news in horror as reports of a mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., were being broadcast on the national news outlets.
    As bits and pieces of information trickled in the horror turned to sorrow as we learned of the 20 first-graders and six educators who were senselessly gunned down by a mentally deranged young man; a man in dire need of help himself, who had somehow fallen through the cracks of societal ignorance and parental denial.

    Most of us identify the “reality” of the Christmas season with traditional decorations and celebrations, and a sparkling tree with colored lights with mounds of brightly wrapped gifts beneath its branches.
