Ed Stetzer writes, “A new study coming out of Lifeway Research shows that ‘Protestant pastors in America are working long hours, sometimes at the expense of relationships with church members, prospects, family and even the Lord.’”

“Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine’s version of ‘America’s Got Talent.’ She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and ‘sand painting’ skills to interpret Germany’s invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.’” It is really an amazing video.

This site, run by Rick Thomas, offers some good articles dealing with tough topics. “The Counseling Solutions Group is a worldwide non-profit organization helping people who are in situational difficulties. This is accomplished by using Christian principles to train leaders to competently counsel as well as by providing practical and compassionate counseling to individuals in need.”
