Life Keeps Coming and Life is Hard

Breaking news -- we humans don't live in the Garden of Eden!  We live and exist in the spiritual wilderness, a parched and dry spiritual desert.   Bad stuff happens and we can't always stop it.   But there is good news! https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR506.mp3

A Matter of Life or Death

Our freely-given relationship with God is literally a matter of life or death. As we prepare to remember his death and celebrate his resurrection, we turn our minds and hearts to Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith.   https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR370.mp3

Life in the Pigpen – Bill Soinski

Life in the pigpen was great for the little piglet. The sow kept him well fed during the day and he would snuggle up to her during the night to keep nice and warm. And then there was the mud! What more could a piglet ask for? It was squishy and gooey and he would roll around in it to make him cool and comfortable in the noonday sun.

It’s Good to Be Alive

It's one of two times in the year when brick-and-mortar churches have their highest attendance. It's without a doubt the most meaningful time of the year for Christians, but Easter lilies, bunny rabbits, Easter hams, painted and chocolate eggs can take our attention away from the vital life-giving significance of this spiritual victory we celebrate every spring. Easter signals new life springing from what is seemingly dead and lifeless. Gray gives way to green. Ice melts and snow is replaced by the promise of buds and sprouts. Light overcomes darkness. The light and life that comes bursting from an empty tomb triumphs over death on the cross, a ...
