Just say… – Christian Article

We were at the birthday party for my husband’s granny. All her sweet, elderly friends were there, cooing over our children who did look cute and gorgeous. All was peaceful, and they congratulated us on our happy instant family. Until Granny’s cake was brought in, and a room full of old people started up ‘Happy Birthday’ in quavering voices. My son was instantly transformed into a raving monster, his loud shrieks, howls and raging sounds easily outdoing the old folk’s…

Perfect Peace – A Worshiper’s Journal – Christian Article

Posted on May 18, 2020 by Roy McMillan Leave a Comment Peace. It’s something we long for but something that can be fleeting and elusive. The dictionary defines peace as freedom from such things as civil disturbance or disquieting and oppressive thoughts or emotions. It is defined as an agreement to put an end to hostilities between nations, or harmony in personal relations. Peace is all of these things. But, as I said before, although it is something we strive…

Are You Living in Fear or in Faith? It’s Time to Stand Out! – Christian Article

The Marriam-Webster dictionary defines Fear as: ‘an unpleasant emotion by anticipation or awareness of danger.’ Here is a question for you before continuing with this article. Are you living in Fear or in Faith? Faith in God is the complete trust in God; trusting God wholeheartedly. So, can you still identify whether you are living in Fear or in Faith?

Manna Moments – Liz Petruzzi – Christian Article

He sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritualists. He did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, arousing His anger. 2 Kings 21:6 King Hezekiah is very sick.

Promises – A Worshiper’s Journal – Christian Article

Posted on May 10, 2020 by Roy McMillan Leave a Comment When someone makes a promise, that person is declaring to another that something will or will not be done. When a promise is made, the person to whom it was made has the right to expect that it will be kept. Yet sometimes it can seem like promises are made to be broken. Children promise their parents not to repeat a bad behavior, only to do so. Husbands and…

Renewing Your Faith in a Pandemic – Youth Ministry Christian Article

As our national quarantine enters its sixth week, most of us have settled into a routine of sorts. We find ourselves working from home and homeschooling our kids at the same time. Some of us have arranged quarantine birthday parties with party guests driving by and delivering their well wishes. We may have learned a new skill such as bread baking or setting up Zoom meetings. We’ve worshipped in pajamas with bed heads and fuzzy slippers. Even though the uncertainty…

What In The World Could God Be Doing In This Time? – Christian Article

These are times of tragedy, sadness, fear, anxiety, wearing masks, sheltering in, social distancing, Zoom meetings, wanting to go back to work or school, boredom and just plain tiredness of it all like we have never seen before. But we who believe in Jesus know that He is always at work in all things, and causing all things to work together for good for those He redeemed. But what “good” could God be bringing about through this pandemic? As John…

Love Much – Liz Petruzzi – Christian Article

Jesus said to the woman, “Because you believed, you are saved from your sins. Go in peace.” –Luke 7:50 It was an invitation of public statement. A Pharisee, respected religious leader, asked Jesus to eat with him so He went. It wasn’t really to honor Jesus. There was an agenda – the Bible doesn’t say but when I read the story, it becomes apparent the Pharisee wasn’t about knowing Jesus. He didn’t want to sit at the Master’s feet. He…

How to Combat Our Corona Complaining – Christian Article

Today is “quarantine” day 40 for me. 40 days of going nowhere, except for an occasional walk in the neighborhood with my wife. On day 30 I thought about singing the old song “30 Days in the Hole.” Didn’t sing it – not the best lyrics. Yesterday in a “Zoom” prayer meeting, a friend of mine mentioned that after God brought Israel out of Egypt they wandered through the desert for 40 years. 40 years! And they didn’t even have…

WHAT’S SO “GOOD” ABOUT GOOD FRIDAY? – A Worshiper’s Journal – Christian Article

Posted on April 10, 2020 by Roy McMillan Leave a Comment From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put…

Flame: Creative Children’s Ministry: Hope Play Dough Mat – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Flame: Creative Children’s Ministry: Hope Play Dough Mat Pages Hope Play Dough Mat This Sunday the lectionary leads us to the story where Thomas meets Jesus after the resurrection. It’s hard in times such as this not to be sympathetic towards Thomas. It’s hard, sometimes to see where Jesus is when there is pain and sadness all around.

Jack Christian? (Not the Movie Producer) – Christian Article

Jack Rabbit (Wikipedia) — sourcing this image meant adding a note to the third definition below. Until yesterday, I had never heard the term ‘Jack Mormon.’ It was a two-word reply to something in a long string of texting I was doing with a friend in Toronto, and I had to pause and check it out. Wikipedia is always a good place to start: The term Jack Mormon is a slang term originating in nineteenth-century America. It was originally used…

Easter during Times of Trouble! It’s the Gospel Truth! – End Times Christian Article

Commentary By:  Gordon King What is happening in the world today with the Coronavirus seems so surreal, it’s like a fictional story written decades ago that is now coming to life!  A global pandemic of a corona type virus that changes the world overnight, just a story?  Not at all, it’s real my friends, eerily real! And even though it seems that life has stopped, that time itself has been frozen, life still goes on.  What is happening around us…

In Times Like These, Let’s Lift Up Our Eyes – Christian Article

During this pandemic, I have been checking the numbers every day. How many cases in the United States; how many deaths. I check the stats for the cities where my children and grandchildren live, and the numbers where my wife and I live. I haven’t been with my children or grandchildren in person for almost 4 weeks now. The coronavirus is always on the news. When my wife and I go for a walk in our neighborhood, we cross the…

Rejoice Always – Liz Petruzzi – Christian Article

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Sound carries loud across backyard into the house. Excited exclamations punctuated by shrieks and screams as I try to concentrate and work. Irritated, I rise and look out the back porch, flung open wide to embrace the cool evening air. Boys and dad fish illegally in the back yard pond. I watch slightly annoyed by the…

HOW TO FIGHT THE TEMPTATION TO FEAR IN TIMES OF CRISIS – Christian Article

I can’t remember anything like this corona pandemic in my entire life. I can’t imagine what it would be like to contract the virus or to have a loved one sick or die from it. So far, I haven’t had to endure anything other than staying in my house for a few days. I don’t know how long this will go on or how much it will spread. I hope it touches no one I know. But even if the…
