Thoughts About Lent

Day before yesterday was the first Sunday of Lent. I have never been a part of a church that observes Lent and I’m not attuned to the liturgical church calendar, so I was caught by surprise when I read a blog last week about Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten observance. In my growing […]

NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT FAMILY

She bought into the myth that if parents implement “perfect family values,” their kids will turn out okay and they will be immune from being broken...

THE NURTURED HEART OF THE TEACHER

Fourth in a series By Sharon MacMillan As a Bible study teacher, have you found yourself running for a notebook so you could write down some golden nugget of truth that would be just perfect for next week’s lesson? It’s a veritable feast as you talk over some new insight that had never dawned on […]

The “No-Casserole Illness”

They call it the “no-casserole illness.” We take meals to people who experience physical illness and suffering, yet for the most part we ignore the fourth of our population that suffers mentally.

A burning question for believers

About fifteen of us sat together for almost three hours as we wrestled with the question: how do we make a radical difference in the spiritual growth of the next generation? The group included children’s workers, youth leaders and pastors, and senior pastors from various churches. We all agreed that we need to invest in the young people God...

God sees

Recently I’ve spent a lot of time in the book of Ruth. One thing that strikes me is how obvious it is that God saw and rewarded her daily choices to do the right thing—often the hard thing. She went far beyond in her commitment to her mother-in-law, not only vowing to stick with her until death, but following through by providing for her with...

What about balance?

It's a wonderful, exciting time of year--this season we call Christmas. It's also exhausting. We find ourselves falling wearily into bed at the end of a day of adding party planning and shopping to our already full lives; then, just as we're falling asleep, we remember yet another thing we really need to do this season. "How much am I expected to...

The Faith of a Child

It’s been a hard week as we’ve watched a very dear couple welcome a baby into their family only to lose her five days later. One of many concerns was how our four-and-a-half-year-old grandson would handle the news of his little cousin’s death. He has prayed fervently for Olivia since her health concerns first surfaced months before she...

Stones of Rememberance

The waters were surging rapidly. The men who carried the Ark of the Covenant stepped forward, placing their feet into the raging waters. All at once the waters parted to each side, standing high to reveal dry land. The priests carried the Ark across, as the rest of the Israelites crossed, too. Once across, Joshua commanded […]

The Holi-daze!!!!

The holidays seem to go faster and faster each year. I’m not sure if this is because holiday decorations begin selling in stores directly after Halloween or simply because as we get older, life seems to move more rapidly. Whatever the reason, I find myself praying to see God in the midst of the pace […]

Daughters of the King

We had the great privilege this week to host a dinner event during CE National’s Momentum week! We had over 100 girls and women attend this event on Thursday evening July 18th. We had a wonderful time celebrating 100 years of God’s ministering to the hearts of girl’s through the SMM ministry. Indiana Wesleyan’s staff...
