Death from Nothing Serious

By Ron Hull I heard once of a man who died from a toothache. It was innocent at first but complications set in. One hardly knows whether to laugh or cry when he hears that kind of story. It reminded me of a tombstone inscription in an old cemetery: “He didn’t die of anything serious.” […]

We’ve had a […]

By Jim Newman Are you afraid to die? I must admit that, at times, I am. I know where I’m going when I do die someday (and the possibility of each of us dying one day is still 100%, by the way). My assurance comes because I’m trusting in what Jesus did on the cross […]

Wisdom’s Dream

By Trudy Wischemann We woke to clouds here on Labor Day, an unexpected gift. They signaled the change that is most certainly coming, but isn’t always discernible when September takes over from August. The burning heat of summer is waning, and soon we’ll arrive at the equinox, the official beginning of Fall. The Times, they […]
