The Light Gets Through

This is a sweet one from Melissa. “Their names are Jack and Wanda, and they’ve been married for 70 years. This week I saw a photograph of them that drew me in to a brief moment of their long life together, a photograph that told a story.”

Identity Politics at the King’s Coronation

Carl Trueman: “My old country is now a foreign country to the one in which I grew up. This became strikingly clear to me last week, when it was announced that the king’s coronation celebrations in May would feature an LGBTQ+ choir. To be clear, it is not the make-up of the choir that makes the most striking statement about how Britain has changed from the country I knew.”

The Hidden Super-Stars of Missions

Who are the hidden superstars of missions? This article will tell you—and explain how you can be one.

Words That Lead

“It used to make me feel funny, intuiting this belief that folks have regarding writers, which goes something like this: It must be nice to have so much free time to write articles, posts, and books, rather than working like the rest of humanity.” Kristin carries on with an enjoyable reflection on the task and calling of writing.

Feeding our Longing

“Have you ever felt like there was more to life than this? Known some sense of longing for the future?” Haven’t we all?

Is It Too Difficult For God?

“I raised my head toward heaven and closed my eyes. I expected the red sea to part, Moses with the face of Charlton Heston, complete with flowing robe and raised staff.

But, like every day since the illness began, when I opened my eyes, Charity lay in unbearable eerie stillness.”

Flashback: A Few Practical Pointers on Sexual Intimacy

A successful sexual relationship depends upon communication. And yet sex is one of the most difficult things to talk about—at least to talk about productively. A husband and wife need to learn to communicate, to speak often and well, about intimacy.

Walk with God and you will never take the wrong road, even by mistake. You have His infallible wisdom to direct you, His immutable love to comfort you, and His eternal power to defend you.

—Charles Spurgeon

  • Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts. On the one level, sex is a simple biological function that exists to populate the earth with human beings. On the other level, it…
