Appreciating Our Differences – There is value in reading this article about appreciating differences in marriage; there may be a bit more value in actually filling out the assessment and talking it over.

A Slow Death to the Soul – I think the best part of Mez McConnell’s article on mercy ministry comes near the end when he says, “It is staggering but true that many churches just haven’t thought about what they are going to do with somebody who comes to faith through their mercy ministry.

Gladwell’s Return to Faith – Here’s a short and interesting interview with bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell who describes a return to faith. (He grew up in a Mennonite home not far from where I live.)

Judgement, Salvation & the Living and the Dead – You may enjoy this sermon jam featuring Dick Lucas.

    The Least of My Children’s Accomplishments

    I know what it is to be a father and to take pride in the achievements of my children. I had not been a father for long when I learned that the least of my children’s accomplishments by far outshines the greatest of my own. Their smallest victory generates more delight than my largest and…
