A very different Christmas Carol. With a discussion about woman on the front lines of Christmas and beyond. Hannah, who stood up in a man’s world foreseeing and announcing God’s answer to a world troubled mostly by men. Along with a stern warning for doing the male thing, ignoring God.

Who has believed our report? And to whom is the way of the LORD revealed?

Missing links birth of Christ found

December 17th, 2014

What a mystery, determining the birthday for the baby Jesus. Yesterday we learned why. Ended up being a little scary. More like Halloween because of its scariness. The difference though it’s real!
Maybe knowing His birthday isn’t important, because after all, it’s a human thing. Because we are talking about a person, who had no beginning […]

Heaven Beckons

During the Christmas season some worthy questions for Christendom.

Two Christmas stories not often told

December 22nd, 2013

Two women centuries apart had their own Christmas account to unfold before the world community. Israelis and Christians fall under the same umbrella of God’s ordinances. Resulting in the abundance of God’s bounties or wrath. Depended upon individual personal choices or national collective choices as nations. For Israelis this abundance of bounties or wrath has […]

Christmas Blues

What does Christmas 2013 mean? Does it mean that we are about to celebrate his 2013th birthday? A time of joy to the world, good will towards all people and peace on earth? If so, what went wrong because it seems that his advent on the world scene isn’t bringing about those superlatives.
There are many […]

Christmas its cumulative effect

His cruel murder by the […]
