A Christian Caregiver: Not Beholding to Anyone – Christian Article

Romans 13: 8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.  Since my dad passed about a year ago, memories drift through my mind. I think it’s part of God’s way of healing my aching heart, which doesn’t quite hurt like it used to. Sometimes someone says something that reminds me of him. Sometimes I hear something on TV, see something that brings all these thoughts flooding back through…

Top Quotes from Orange Conference Live #oc20 – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Posted By: Ron Conferences are great opportunities to learn. But they go by so fast. I can type faster than I can write, but I still cannot type fast enough to capture everything that is said, so I tend to try to capture highlights or quotes. On their own, they are great statements, but they all will lead to a bigger picture, even if you weren’t there to hear the entire message. Here are some of my highlight quotes from…

Macedonian Call, Christians, Missionary, Missions – Christian Article

Tweet What is the Macedonian Call? Is that a call that Christians will have too, except not in Macedonia? Saul’s Call Perhaps the reason that Jesus Himself had to directly intervene in the Apostle Paul’s life to call him as a missionary was probably because no human alive could have ever witnessed to him about Jesus Christ and then lived to tell about it. Can you imagine trying to go up to Saul and share Christ while he had been…

Gather Me Close – Liz Petruzzi – Christian Article

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.” –Jesus, Matthew 23:37 Gather me close, under Your wings. I’ve stoned those sent to me with messages I refused to receive. Claimed my own understanding. Went my own way. Gather me close. You give weary souls rest. Take away my heavy. Carry me…

Four Comings of Jesus Christ – End Times Christian Article

Reposted from the website of Dr. Gold (God’s Hidden Nuggets for the EndTimes)         (Note: many words capitalized, and highlighted for emphasis.)     Many do not know that the Holy Bible reveals 4 Comings of Jesus Christ to earth, and each coming reveals God’s redemptive and eternal plan for believers, from Adam and Eve, to the present and beyond. The 4 Comings of Jesus Christ to earth can be summarized as such: The 1st Coming of Jesus Christ was for our SALVATION,…

Surviving Zoom Fatigue | TheSource4YM – Youth Ministry Christian Article

How to Start Winning the Engagement Gameby Joel Williamson About 15 minutes into one of our latest virtual youth ministry gatherings, I was already spent.  Don’t get me wrong – I love my teens and I was grateful for the technology to be able to see some of their faces and connect.  At the same time, I felt “over it.”  I wanted to leave our meeting right then. I never signed up to be an online youth minister. I am…

A Prayer for Loving Difficult People – Your Daily Prayer – Christian Article

A Prayer for Loving Difficult PeopleBy Mary Southerland “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35 True love is God’s love. It looks beyond abrasive behavior to see and meet the real needs hidden there. Meeting a need in the life of a sandpaper person can be messy and usually demands a sacrifice of some kind on our part. It is easier to simply placate or avoid difficult people than…

Jesus our Sustainer — More Precious – Christian Article

I was 17, I had just passed my driving test and the world was my absolute oyster. But it was then that everything changed. I woke up one morning (17th January 2014 to be exact) and found that I was totally crippled by a hip problem. This kickstarted a journey to discovering I had a chronic hip condition that I had been born with. I seemed to see every medical specialist under the sun, experience countless scans and hospital appointments,…

Now the Lord himself of peace give you peace – End Times Christian Article

By Elizabeth Prata The other evening I was standing at the edge of the hayfield, and the blue cornflowers gave a wonderful tinge that mirrored the sky, and the burnt sienna hay tips rustled in the breeze, showing where the wind had been. The birds swooped over the field looking for insects and I thought, how peaceful, how peaceful. This is my life, and it is wonderful. “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times…

The Instant Curriculum Revolution And What It Means For Your Ministry – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

In the past, churches used expensive and complicated technology in all their classrooms to present Orange curriculum. Getting this ready every week took several team members countless hours. And if a kid didn’t show up to church that week there was no way for the family to view the full video experience and lessons they missed from their ministry leaders. The Church Technology Monster Countless leaders have shared with us the old way they were preparing curriculum and expressed pain…

The Antinaturalism of Late Postmodernity – Christian Article

The Antinaturalism of Late Postmodernity Skip to main content The Antinaturalism of Late Postmodernity Among the definitions offered for Modernity and Postmodernity, I would argue that a definition involving ‘nature’ gets to the core.  Modernity elevated science to the head of departments in the university. Postmodernity has responded by rejecting the study of nature, with its objectivity, and replacing science first with literature, a subjective study, and then with the social sciences, investing group realities with political power (the ‘reality’…

A rare annular—ring of fire—solar eclipse will occur over Africa, the Middle East, India, and China on June 21, 2020—the summer solstice. During this eclipse 99% of the sun will be covered. Sometimes eclipses are followed by judgments falling upon our world.  The Great American eclipse of August 21, 2017, which this blog warned about, was followed by a judgement that occurred 40 days after the eclipse—the Las Vegas mass shooting.

You Have More in Common With Gen Z Than You Think – Youth Ministry Christian Article

There is a lot being said right now about Gen Z (Gen Z: The Hand They Have Been Dealt | Gen Z: The Culture, Beliefs, and Motivations Shaping the Next Generation). But we need to be careful as we do a deep dive into what makes this generation tick. Our preoccupation with the uniqueness of this generation, might actually isolate us from them instead of drawing us to them. You probably have more in common with Gen Z than you realize. I…

Guide for Pastoring during Coronavirus: Outreach, Sermon Ideas, More – Christian Article

People talk about adjusting to the “new normal” caused by coronavirus like it’s all bad—and maybe it is. It’s hard to tell at this point. But there’s also good. Bibles are flying off shelves and trending in Google searches. People are aware of their needs now, more than ever, and they’re longing for hope. Christians have that hope, and the world can change if we share it. If we’re just biding our time waiting for all this to be over,…

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…

Discouraged By Present Circumstances? . . . – Youth Ministry Christian Article

One of my favorite reminders comes from Francis Bacon, who said that “Histories make men wise.” All throughout the Scriptures people, including ourselves, have been reminded to remember. We are called to remember the faithfulness, character, deeds, and promises of the Lord. For the Christian, remembering carries us through the trials and difficulties of the present with a hope-filled eye toward the future. This is a lesson we so desperately need to pass on to our kids. . . especially as…
