  • I have heard the question posed, (I expect you have as well), if you were prosecuted in a court of law, for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? It is a legitimate question.

    According to the Barna research group, there is statistically no difference for divorce, and numerous other cultural and moral issues in professing Christians and the rest of society.

    We know as Christ followers that we are to be a “separate” called-out people. We are to live differently than the rest of the world.

  • It seems to me, there is a day, week, month, holiday for everything.

    Every profession has a day, every food has a day. Being on so many food blogs and pages every week, I am reminded to honor bagels, cupcakes, bacon, broccoli and this month — the sandwich. August apparently is the month for sandwiches, goat cheese and catfish.

    I decided to offer three recipes this week that will satisfactorily cover all the bases.

  • Do you experience worry, anxiety, fear in your life? Dumb question, right? All I have to do is turn on MSNBC, or Fox News for awhile to see the political scene, storms, flooding, ISIS, and the economy, and I am ready to go out and play in the traffic. It’s enough to make your head explode.
