Moses is biblical example for all of us of one who endured
It is one thing for a person to run away when opposition arises in your life, to hide when the danger literally terrifies you, or to reply when the words of another are unkind or untrue; but it is quite another thing to stand still in order to see the Lord work within your life, or to hold your tongue while committing everything to Him.

Christ to church: Be witness to world, not conformed by it
By any definition, ours is a challenging time for the church of Jesus Christ. That challenge discourages some, and encourages others. Among those of us stimulated by the challenge, it is a time to visit again the double responsibility the church has in relation to the world.
Storms of life will change us, but it’s up to us how
In all likelihood there are few folks reading this that have not seen “The Wizard of Oz” at least once. The movie starts out calmly enough with the usual troubles of a young teenage farm girl in mid-20th century Kansas. Early on, one of the all-time movie understatements is uttered when one of the cast members says something to the affect of: “There is a storm brewing.”
