  • A tune-up or an overhaul?

    February 17 2012 by Larry Doyle, Baptist Press | with 0 comments

    One of the things I remember about my dad was his uncanny ability to diagnose what was wrong with an automobile. When I was a teen, he owned and operated his own garage where he serviced cars, trucks and just about anything with four wheels.

  • 4 reasons you should call instead of write

    February 10 2012 by Thom S. Rainer, Baptist Press | with 0 comments

    I really do like the digital age of communications. I can send emails at faster speeds of communication than I would have dreamed years ago. I constantly communicate with my three sons and close friends via text messages.

  • A few weeks ago, I spoke to a church in New York City that is now vulnerable to eviction from the school building where they meet because they spoke of the wrong things – religious things. As such, their speech is soon likely to be banned...

  • Tips for ministering to parents of newborns

    February 1 2012 by Diana Davis | with 0 comments

    Our granddaughter, Lily, was born in January. (Can you hear me smiling?) As their church lovingly ministered to the new parents, I realized the magnitude of those small acts. Does your church need fresh ideas for a new parent ministry? Try some of...
