Feeling What God Feels

True love will always require emotion! But what is appropriate emotion in an age of over-stimulation and under-application.

God & Science – What Albert Einstein Wished He Knew

Where do these hostile thoughts come from? These painful memories so unresolved? Why do they besiege my soul? How can I find refuge?

Church Wounds – Hypocrisy & Insensitivities

Who can know the depth of a person’s pain? Who, but God! He alone has been with us, especially during the most heart-wrenching moments of our lives. He saw the injustice. He heard the hurtful words. He loved us through every poor decision. “Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen. Nobody…
