    The Second Guessing Syndrome

    By Debra Gaskill | December 11, 2020

    I walked up to the sign-in table of the Children’s Ministry at the mega church I attended–three young children in tow. You had to get your kids signed in early on Sunday morning or the classes might be full. Happy that I was ahead of schedule, I smiled at the…

    On Point Prayer

    By Debra Gaskill | June 11, 2021

    When people ask for prayer, I’m sure it is with the best intentions. But the way they ask may not be yielding the best results. I’ve done it, maybe you have too…I’m talking about vague requests or ”the unspoken prayer” petition. Here is the problem with that: faith begins where…

    I Don’t Want to Learn How to Swim

    By Jack Watts | May 21, 2021

    When my brother and I were about this age, our mom, Murph, decided that we needed to learn to swim. Acting upon her decision, she bought a package of swimming lessons for us at the local YMCA in Newton, Massachusetts. Back then, only men were allowed to be at the…

    Here Is a Place to Start

    By Jack Watts | June 16, 2021

    The question I have been asked the most often since last November is this: “What can I do to help?” Being keenly aware of what happened, of how the fundamental American right of one man, one vote was betrayed to gain an unjust outcome, millions of good Americans want to…

    The Storyteller’s Daughter Pt. 2 (Revival)

    By Debby Davis | April 23, 2021

    My dad attended Elim Bible Institute for three years.  He studied the Bible, grew in his understanding of God, and life got very exciting.  He became quite involved in our home church and would often tell everyone about all the things he was learning in Bible school.  Many members of my extended family attended that…

    Symbolism Is Monumentally Important to Islam

    By Jack Watts | April 21, 2021

    I want to explain something important, something that most do not realize. Let me begin by saying this: symbolism is monumentally important to Islam. It’s far more important than it is to people like us who have a Western mind. This isn’t something new either. This has been true since the time of Mohammed, when…

    God Is Patient with Us, but Why?

    God Is Patient with Us, but Why?

    By Jack Watts | April 19, 2021

    Almighty God is very patient with each of us. Long-suffering is also in His nature. It’s why both characteristics are fruit of the Holy Spirit. When God calls us, you and me, He takes us as we are, regardless of where that might be. Then, He begins His long and arduous task of molding us…

    The Story Teller’s Daughter (The Beginning)

    By Debby Davis | April 16, 2021

    “Rise and shine for the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” Those were the words that my sister and I woke up to as our dad, Charles Wesley Elwell, would throw open our bedroom door and flick on the lights.  Daddy was serious about serving Jesus.  But it hadn’t always been that way. …

    Biden’s “Corrupt Power Grab”

    By Jack Watts | April 14, 2021

    From the time of Marbury v. Madison in 1803, the issue of a free and independent judiciary has been established in the United States. Although often frustrating and irritating, our system of justice has worked well, upholding the Rule of Law consistently and repeatedly for over two centuries. Rarely has it been undermined like it…

    Conquering Chaos

    By Debra Gaskill | April 12, 2021

    This morning I received a text that said, “I’m stressed. I miss how the world used to be. I can’t handle this chaos.” At that moment, I knew that anything I said would sound cliche. A few hours later I felt led to go to the grocery store. Weird, because I just went yesterday and…

    Accelerated Change is the New-Norm for the Church

    Accelerated Change is the New-Norm for the Church

    By Ron Luce | April 9, 2021

    Imagine you are on the beach.  You can feel the warm sand between your toes.  The gentle waves lull you and lure you to experience their soothing effect on your soul.  The beautiful clear water (must be in the Bahamas) is irresistible and even though you are not a water person compels you to take…

    Retake the USA from Depravity

    By Jack Watts | April 7, 2021

    To a Progressive, everything we say, everything we believe, everything we hold dear and cherish is a lie. Christianity is a lie. The Judeo-Christian Ethic is nothing more than a construct of entitled oppressors to hold down and repress individual expression. There is no right and wrong. It doesn’t exist. There is no North Star…

    The Power Of Transparency

    By Debra Gaskill | April 5, 2021

    It was Friday night–the beginning of a weekend women’s church retreat. What could be better? God. Food that I didn’t have to prepare. A beautiful hotel. It was going to be good. And then the first speaker opened her mouth… She had been the praise and worship leader in her church and fallen in love…
