However the announcement of the birth of the Prince of Peace was to be made privately, in the darkness of night, and without any of the…

For a lot of us we’ve grown up with the words of  Luke 2:14 going through our heads during the holiday season.” Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” However, when we look at the world around us we’re tempted to ask what peace.

“People God Uses Series”, The Perfect Example.

For many years Monterey, a California coast town, was a pelican’s paradise. As the fishermen cleaned their fish, they flung the waste to the pelicans. The birds grew fat, lazy, and contented. Eventually, however the waste was utilized, and there were no longer snacks for the pelicans. When the change came the pelicans made no…

The Fight for Truth

I Love the old story of a couple of hunters who chartered a plane to fly into the Canadian wilderness. Two weeks later when the pilot came to pick them up, he saw the two animals they had bagged and said, “I told you, fellows, I could only take you and one moose. You’ll have…
