3 Ways You Can Enhance Your Prayer Life

In Jesus name, amen? During my formative years, I found myself combining several prayers I’d heard many times before. Some were from my father; others from my mother, and the remainders were crumbs from other church members. On any given day, my prayer would sound something like this. “We thank you once again for spared […]

The Homeless Blessing

She was dirty, VERY dirty. I was sitting on a swivel chair at Koronet, a pizza store on the upper west side of Manhattan, New York. We were halfway through filming an upcoming project for Hope Channel and I was halfway through a giant-sized slice of pizza – Koronet’s specialty. I heard the homelessness in […]

An Answer to Prayer

“There is no way you’ll be going to church this Saturday!” exclaimed our neighbor Neil. Neil, a yachty who followed the weather throughout the day, stated that a huge storm system was heading directly towards us and would make walking to church impossible. The walk there and back is about 5 miles and the unpaved […]

Word Count

Do you have a favorite Christian author? Growing up I enjoyed the novels of C.S. Lewis and in high school a friend introduced me to his masterpiece Mere Christianity. But it wasn’t until college that I discovered the books of my favorite author, the 19th century Christian leader Ellen White. Consistently, I’ve found her writings (such as […]

After existing for just two years and employing a staff of a dozen people, this last year the photo sharing site Instagram was acquired for $1 billion. Many commentators noted that this exceeded the value of the New York Times, which has been a leading news source for over 150 years. I see this as further […]
