  • It’s the Father’s love for his wayward children that radically changes them

    There’s a group of people in North Carolina who call themselves People of the Second Chance (POSC).
    One of the things they do is throw parties — for people just out of prison, for recovering drug addicts, for misfits, for the discouraged, for the uncelebrated and forgotten, for the overlooked and hurting, for those bowed down with guilt and shame.
    What they do is backwards and upside down. The parties aren’t for the straight A student, the athlete of the year, the one who does things right most of the time.

  • God goes with us through the darkness, walks with us in our pain

    Last Saturday, Larry Silverman caught a catfish, which he considers a miracle, a moment of light after a year of incredible darkness.
    Larry is the pastor of New Covenant of Grace Fellowship in Inverness, Fla.
    Last year, Larry had a loose tooth, and shortly after he had it pulled he was diagnosed with cancer in his mouth. As a result, he had part of his tongue removed and his jaw reconstructed using a bone and skin from his leg. He now eats through a feeding tube.

  • Much to be thankful for throughout 40 years of faith

    Dear God,
    Here I am again, my 17th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithful kindness and goodness to me.
    Lord, you and I have walked together for nearly 40 years, and even when I’ve strayed from the path, you’ve never left my side or dropped hold of my hand, even for a moment.
    You have walked with me through “hell and high water,” through the fire and over the rocky roads. Often I’ve been afraid, although always needlessly.

    A spirit of joy was felt by all as we gathered to worship the Lord this past Sunday.
    Our pastor brought the message from John 7 entitled “An Incomparable Invitation.”
    Sunday evening we participated in the Community Thanksgiving Service.
    Our young ladies concluded the drive for Operation Christmas Child with a special prayer of blessing for all the children who would be receiving the special gifts.
