Will the Music Go Silent in Kiev?

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century” was the collapse of the Soviet Union.  Now, in 2022, Putin is moving hard to “reclaim,” as he would see it, an important part of Russia – neighboring Ukraine.  Thus, the fallout from the Communist atheists’ disastrous takeover of Russia […]

These are very trying times. But the ultimate problem is the threat of death. Despite all of life’s difficulties, Jesus has taken the sting out of death.

The 400th Anniversary of the First Thanksgiving

2021 marks the 400th anniversary of a special American tradition. Four centuries ago, during the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims sat down with their new Native American friends and celebrated the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  What a great tradition – where we gather together to recount the Lord’s blessings.

The Lost Art of Bible Meditation

We have lost the great art of Bible meditation today, and we are the poorer for it. In 1987, newsman Ted Koppel gave a classic commencement speech at Duke, in which he famously said that Moses didn’t come down from Mt.

Before the ACLU Comes Knocking
