What Peace on Earth?

Posted by DeVonna in Searcher's Place, 25 November 2016 - - - - - - · 913 views

Listening to Christmas songs recently I was struck by their joyous message and the stark contrast between them and the condition of the world we live in today. Every day seems to bring news of more harsh realities of life on this little orb we call earth. Natural disasters, social turmoil, violence, loss, let’s face it, this world is a mess! How do we rec...

“LOOK – SQUIRREL” The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it; Surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” – Isaiah 40:7,8 
On my grade one report card, my teacher, Mrs. Dolman, wrote that "Craig needs to focus more and not get so easily distrac...

The Future Belongs to the Lord

Posted by DeVonna in Searcher's Place, 02 January 2017 - - - - - - · 266 views

Happy New Year!  
There's a great big beautiful year stretching out before us. Did you make resolutions? I did, I enjoy the idea of a new opportunity to challenge and better myself. Of course we can do this at any time, but we especially think of new beginnings at the New Year. Not everyone views the future with anticipation though. In fact, worryi...

"FREEDOM IS NOT FREE..."

Posted by Pastor Ashish Bijorikar in Pastor Ashish Bijorikar's Blog, 23 November 2016 - - - - - - · 244 views

DEAR BELOVED PEOPLE OF GOD
IT IS TRUE THAT FREEDOM IS NOT FREE, IT IS BOUGHT THROUGH BLOOD. WE ARE FREE BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST SHED BLOOD FOR US. HE PAID THE PRICE FOR US. THEREFORE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE IT IS BOUGHT THROUGH BLOOD.

ALL about Jesus

Posted by elizabethcog in elizabethcog's Blog, 01 November 2016 - - - - - - · 225 views

Jesus Christ is my Savior, I pray I will never be silent about His saving grace! The world wants to silence me but my God will not let me. He has not only rescued me from the pits of hell but also from the living hell on earth I used to live in, oh His goodness never ceases to amaze, his miracles I have seen firsthand every day since I accepted His gift....

A Lesson In Broken Glass

Posted by Lewis Butler in Lewis Butler's Blog, 21 September 2016 - - - - - - · 310 views

…forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 3:13,14)  
A few years ago I invited a messianic Jewish evangelist to come speak to the congregation about his understanding concerning Hebrew roots and th...

Religious Freedom, the LGBT+ Community, Our Faith, and Our Hearts

Posted by Joseph Beckley in Joseph Beckley's Blog, 10 August 2016 - - - - - - · 478 views

I read an article Tuesday morning that distressed me.
I thought about just letting it go. I have a few friends who still aren’t talking to me much following previous posts on contemporary issues. It is certainly easier and less heartbreaking to simply be quiet. However I cannot do that. These issues, and their impact on our faith, are too important....

A Testimony of God's Grace

God has been working greatly in our youngest son's life. Bobby (though he prefers to go these days by "Robert") shares his heart in this testimony through spoken word poetry. It is transparent and powerful and, above all, Christ honoring. Your can view it here .

As a person who regularly tries to encourage fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to try to spend more time concerning themselves with the Good News of Jesus that produces hope than the nothing-new-under-the-sun news of the headlines that prod...

Was this the Messiah? Or was he the Prophet promised by Moses?

Posted by RuthAnn Nicholls in Love Letters, 24 February 2016 - - - - - - · 243 views

John 7:40-52 
Recall, Jesus is in Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles. He teaches the multitudes and has just described the pouring out of the Spirit in John 7:37-39. What he said amazed the people and, evidently, the palace guards. When Jesus emphatically told them that streams of living water would flow from him, the people were divided...

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.... I am John Dix Jr. and I was named after my dad. I come from a Cherokee and a White background. I am from Lumpkin County, Georgia. The household I was raised in for the most part of my childhood years was Godly then went down hill. I was raised in the Holiness Pentecostal Christian background for the most part of my childhood.

Income Tax Withholding for Ministers

Posted by dantleung in Income Tax Withholding for Ministers, 11 January 2016 - - - - - - · 659 views

I am the new treasurer for one of the C&MA churches in Michigan. I would like to know whether our church, which is a typical C&MA church, is required to withhold income taxes for an ordained minister on our payroll. According to the following article on the internet, it seems that we are not supposed to withhold Social Security and Medicare tax...

Have you ever

Posted by Merilyn Lauffer in Merilyn Lauffer's Blog, 30 July 2015 - - - - - - · 667 views

Have you ever been prompted to pray for someone? I am sure you have. In our busy lives we often make a mental note and hopefully remember to pray for that person later. At our best, we stop everything and lift our hearts to the Lord and pray. 
Have you ever been prompted to go to that person and pray for them right then and there? It happens to m...

Only One Life - Elisabeth Elliot

Posted by Amy Roedding in IM Candidates, 17 June 2015 - * * * * * · 1306 views

Only One Life - Elisabeth Elliot This week I heard that Elisabeth Elliot had died. The first thought that came to my mind was not about death but about heaven! I thought of how a lady who had lived her life full out for Jesus was getting welcomed by so many including her Savior in heaven!

It is amazing to me to think of how one life had such an impact on so many. Even for me - I was not...

Let's go there: our DNA and the Jewish People

Posted by mkrpa in Ruby's Blog, 13 April 2015 - - - - - - · 642 views

In this General Council year, I encourage our leaders to examine C&MA DNA: if one goes back to the founding program, it lists one of A. B. Simpson's primary people group focus: the Jewish people. This also happens to be the primary group to reach, according to the Word, in several places: Romans 1:16 and Acts...

Is God man or spiritual force ?

Posted by Pastorjay86 in Pastor Jamall Robinson, 31 October 2014 - - - - - - · 931 views

Is God man or spiritual force ?
The Bible tells us that God is spirit. God is like a man in terms of having personality. We are made in the image and likeness of God in terms of our sentient nature and our spiritual nature. But God is not like a man. He is holy and different than us, but some of our characteristics mirror his divine attributes....
