3. Sight

“And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking” (Mark 8:24).
Growing up in the 1970s there was an LP Record Album in my parents’ small record collection that I especially liked to listen to, “The Gospel Road Soundtrack.” At the time, the name Johnny Cash did not mean anything to me, but the song, “I See Men as Trees Walking,” had a profound effect on my perception of the story of Jesus healing a blind more…

5. News and Views

Few countries treat religion in the same neutral way found in the United States. Even among liberal democracies, governments often play favorites by giving support to some religions and restricting minority religions. As a result, only one-in-five people around the globe live in a country that treats all religions equally. This statistic is based on work by Jonathan Fox from Bar Ilan University.

“You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments,
listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him” (Deuteronomy 13:4 NAS).
How do we cling to God? Moses gave us a clue when he admonished the Israelites. He told them to follow Him, to fear Him, to keep His commandments, to listen to His voice and to serve Him.

9. Taste

“O taste and see that the LORD is good, Blessed is the man that trusteth in Him” (Psalm 34:8).
Imagine holding a freshly rinsed strawberry in your hands.  Notice how plump and juicy it is and its deep red color. You see a bead of water running slowly down its side. You hold it closer to your lips and take a bite. Instantly the rush of flavor and sweetness envelops your palate and compels you to take a second bite, and a third, until it is all gone! read more..
