Continue in Prayer Together

Last month the focus was on beginning with prayer – beginning the year and beginning each day on our knees in private communion with the Living God above. That personal relationship with God through personal repentance (God’s saving grace that gives each individual an awareness of their sin and a blessed understanding of the mercy…

Begin with Prayer

I grew up in a Christian home (for which I am very thankful to God), with par-ents who insisted (rightly so) that we always pray before we eat. It is an in-grained habit (which is good) that makes it virtually impossible to start eating if I haven’t prayed. To borrow from the title of a…

Talking Turkey This Thanksgiving

Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. – James 1:26 NIV James speaks quite frankly here at the beginning of his letter and later when he writes: “All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed…

Days Set Apart – Both Sacred and Civil

What will you do with your holiday? Although most of the days of our lives will be similar, i.e., ordinary and routine, some days are special and deserve to be recognized as such. There are numerous benefits to setting apart some days to celebrate or to memorialize certain seminal events in our lives. This can…

Worship Matters: Part 3

The first Element that we will look at is the “reading of Holy Scripture” (BCO 47-9). Christianity is a revealed religion; that is to say, we believe the Bible is God’s special revelation. We would not know who God is or what He requires of us (see WSC #3) unless He tells us. Apart from…
