    Are You A Christian May Not Be the Right Question

    Are You A Christian?

When asked, 'are you a Christian', it's not uncommon for people to reply with a simple, "Yes." When I hear that answer, I know I have to do some probing. Why? Some people's definition of being a Christian is, "I was born that way." Others believe that because they …

    Syd Mead, Forgotten Gravesite, Remembered Mom

    Sci-Fi Fan Remembering Mom –

    I had not been to my mom's gravesite since the day we laid her to rest in 1985. Why bother? She wasn't even there the day we planted her body. She was with the Lord.

    An Ear Witness

    Lincoln Village Jazz“By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.” II Corinthians 13:1  A witness is someone who sees, hears, or knows by personal presence. A witness should never have become a religion; but that's a topic for another day.

    The UCSB Lagoon Location

    Location, Location, Location -

Location applies not only to businesses, but also to outreach ministry. Paris-HotelThere are certain locations where I've had great …
