Stop doubting and believing

It may sound a little dramatic, but the thing I worry most about in my faith is that Jesus will return before a family member or friend comes to a saving knowledge of him. Ever since Jesus was born and since he died, we have the opportunity for salvation. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. " (John 3:17)

Word for the Week

When I first heard God calling me into ministry from a career in academia, I thought surely I was mistaken. I was a family therapist and professor of child development at NC State University. I had worked hard and was on my way to building a prominent career. There was one problem: God had different plans for me.

Intersections: God and Life

"Confess."
What does that word bring to mind when you read it? What does it mean in the Christian life? How does one actually confess? These days, it seems like each week brings new headlines with apologies from pedestaled persons owning up to moral failings.

Look, I don't care what you call it.
You can tell me about Gregorians and and equinoxes and solstices, or whatever you want, but when the temperature hits 90 with regularity, it is summer.
If it makes you feel better to hold off until June 21 this year to officially call it summer, then fine. My car seat burns say otherwise.
