We don’t even know her name.  We only know that she was married to Noah—someone the New Testament refers to as “a herald of righteousness”—a witness and evangelist, by the way he lived.  (See Hebrews 11:7 and II Peter 2:5) The Bible states that she and Noah have three grown sons, each of them married, [...]

In this week’s chapter, Kerry tells of her experience volunteering at a bread line in Manhatten where they hand out hundreds of sandwiches every day to anyone in line.  She’s never helped out with it before but takes to it quickly.  Afterwards, she stops in the nearby chapel for prayer. I can think of exactly [...]

Holy Water by Big & Rich

There’s something calming about water.  Swimming pools, lakes, and bubble baths are all places people go for respite and relief.  The theme of water in this song conveys the idea that God can hold and envelope us in our darkest hours similar to how water does when we submerge ourselves in it.  On [...]

Our faith in Christ can exist on many levels, from the most superficial to the deepest and most intimate. We see this same spectrum present in the Gospels. Some people encountered Jesus and went about their merry way, taking nothing from the experience and, as a consequence, remaining unchanged. Others, like the Apostle Thomas who [...]

In the creation account of Genesis, God gave human beings, created in His image and likeness, a command to “Fill the earth and subdue it” (Gen 1:28).

A Sign of Contradiction

It is Ash Wednesday in New York City.  Kerry finds herself wondering if the ashes on her forehead are something that brings her closer to others or something that makes her stand apart from them.  She’s used to seeing lots of folks with the familiar forehead smudge in the city, but this is not the [...]

Rise by Danny Gokey
