Resurrecting a Dead World
by Dan Vandzura on April 16th, 2021
This past Sunday my wife and I returned from a somewhat impromptu vacation to Sanibel, Fl. This little island just off the Gulf coast was our honeymoon destination a few years ago, and we have been back each year since. As nature-lovers (and beach lovers), the largely conserved Island yields to us beautiful and unique environments full of incredible wildlife (the birds being by far my favorite to ...  Read More
What To Do About Doubt
by Josh Cervone on April 9th, 2021
A little more than a week has passed. You’re sitting in a stuffy room full of the men with whom you’ve spent the last three years. You are all terrified. That’s why you’re hiding with the doors locked. The Jewish leaders may be coming to arrest you and possibly execute you the way that they did your leader a little over a week ago. The others in the room claim that this man has come back to life. ...  Read More

How to Win as a Christian
by Dan Vandzura on March 19th, 2021
Over the course of the past few years, I have become an avid board game fan. It’s not an uncommon scene in my house for my wife and I to be sitting on the floor over a board with a set of cards in our hands, trying to out-think the other and come out on top. The truth is we are both highly competitive, and each of us really like to win…As someone who likes to win, returning to the story of the dea...  Read More
Love Who?! How?!
by Josh Cervone on March 12th, 2021
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven. For he causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” - Matthew 5:43-45Love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you. That is a radical ...  Read More
