Putting on the New


More Than Believing

Dec 10, 2016 12:37 am | Alyssa Kristine

If I were to walk down the street and ask a few handfuls of people if they believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, I can guarantee that the majority would say yes. If I ask those same people if they pray throughout the day, I bet a few less would say yes. And if […]

Are You Ready for Bethlehem?

Dec 09, 2016 01:00 am | Becky Melby

I read somewhere that rolls of papyrus were sometimes up to 33 feet long. Mary could have made some pretty looong lists for her trip to Bethlehem, but I’m guessing hers was pretty simple: Water Bread Olives Cheese lentils Dried fruit Flour Olive oil Lamp Extra tunic Sleeping mats Swaddling bands Square cloth Salt (Two […]

The Third Commandment

Dec 08, 2016 11:15 am | Patti Shene

I’ve starterd reading the Bible through again, and this time, I have a jump on the New Year. Since I finished reading the study Bible I was using last time (which took me over three years!), I got started early on the version I had chosen for this year, my mom’s large print Good News […]

Shaking the Holiday Blues

Dec 07, 2016 01:02 am | Cynthia Roemer

CHRISTMAS! We all have expectations of what Christmas ought to be. For some of us, the very thought of breaking out decorations, and gathering with family to share in the story of Christ’s birth makes us shimmer with excitement. While others cower at the thought of traipsing through crowded stores and crawling along in bumper-to-bumper traffic. I tend […]

We might think we’re OK or even worthy enough to say…”lookin’ good!”  As long as we don’t look in the mirror, we can imagine and believe whatever we want.  Oh, how quickly that changes when we see our reflection.  But we can’t ignore what’s in the mirror, can we?  After all, the mirror doesn’t lie.  […]

Mary’s Journal

Dec 05, 2016 06:00 am | Barbara Latta

In the month of Nissan Today we lost the Son of God. After Passover, we left Jerusalem with relatives thinking Jesus was with some of our group. How could we be so blind and not see His desire for the scriptures and the Temple? How could we choose the Temple as the last place to […]

Where is Mary?

Dec 04, 2016 03:54 am | Lisa Betz

Nativity sets come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  Mine is made of hand-carved olive wood from Israel. But that’s not what makes it so unusual. Take a closer look. Can you spot what I mean? Right in the middle, where he belongs, is baby Jesus in the manger, surrounded by sheep and cattle, bearded […]

In All Your Getting – Get an Understanding

Dec 03, 2016 12:15 pm | Terry Cato

The word of God says, “wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And with all thy getting get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7 KJV). The day after the recent Presidential election, I was in a meeting where we were encouraged to share our feelings, thoughts and reflections about the election results. I did not feel led […]
