  • The church’s mission to make culture

    May 16 2019 by Dayton Hartman | with 0 comments

    The late founder of one of my alma maters was fond of saying, “If it’s Christian, it ought to be better.” This wasn’t an arrogant claim that Christians possess superior talents or abilities. It was just his way of saying...

    May 10 2019 by J.D. Greear | with 0 comments

    Last year, after accepting the nomination for presidency of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), I laid out my prayers for our convention. One year in, as we prepare again for our annual meeting, I am just as excited to see God moving in every...

  • I went on my first short-term mission trip to Cancun, Mexico. While many of you may be thinking “that wasn’t a mission trip, that was a vacation,” let me assure you that it wasn’t. In fact, we didn’t see the ocean or...

  • Worship when you’re weary

    May 7 2019 by Anna Schaeffer | with 0 comments

    I hit a rough patch a few weeks ago. Lots of things went wrong all at the same time.   I wasn’t walking through tragedy – just the heaviness of life. Yet I still felt so run-down by everything that was happening, it all made me...

  • I hate to rest. Rest is what lazy people do when they should be doing something productive. That was my perception, at least, when my wife and I prepared to go overseas as missionaries. I was very shocked, therefore, when we received instructions...

  • Thy will be done

    April 26 2019 by Redunda Noble | with 0 comments

    Sometimes, it seems the hardest thing for a Christian to do is to accept God’s will.   We pray and ask God for help – to heal us, bless our lives and change our situations. We pray that God will answer...

    April 25 2019 by Steve Playl | with 0 comments

    Someday, I suppose, we will look back on the days we are living in and reminisce about how it was back before … (you fill in the blank). Can you imagine the changes in technology that are still “out there” somewhere?   ...
