Today begins Holy Week, the most sacred week in Christianity, the week that Christians remember the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. So what is Christianity about, what do Christians believe?
1. Christians believe that man is lost in sin. He cannot by his own merits enter heaven when he dies. (For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23)
2. God in his mercy sent his son, Jesus, to die on the cross for us and pay the penalty for our sin. (For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes…

As early as grade school, when I was a voracious reader and a straight-A student, I identified with being smart. And I believed smart people didn’t need religion. As a result, I declared myself an atheist and dismissed people who believed in God as uneducated.
In high school, I led a classroom debate team arguing for a godless form of evolution, confident my side would win because “this was science.” When the class voted and awarded victory to the creation side, I was dumbstruck. Most people didn’t understand science, I figured—either that, or they were unduly swayed by the most popular girl in class. She had a swimming pool in her backyard and threw fun parties.
At the time, I babysat to earn money. One of my favorite…

To understand how God may be speaking to us today, we should first examine how He spoke in the past. What made His voice so clear to the heroes of faith?
In the Old Testament accounts, one of the primary ways God spoke to people was by direct revelation. That is, He communicated one-on-one, directly to their spirit. This is what we see in His conversations with Abraham, for instance (Gen. 12:1-3).
Then, of course, the Lord also spoke through His Word. This included the Ten Commandments and the law of Moses, which made it possible for people to know and obey the divine will (Ex. 20:1-26).
Another way that God communicated was through circumstances. For example, think about His interaction with Gideon, who was frightened and needed some extra encouragement (Judg. 6:36-40). The Lord graciously answered his request for a special physical sign of divine presence.

I found myself feeling uninspired, and in a bit of a foul mood while trying to enjoy my painting time after a challenging week. What to do? I looked out of the window and observed Betty White and Pearl Bailey busy gossiping around the base of a palm tree.
Betty and Pearl are chickens living in the heart of a large city at a complex that feels as if it is not in the city at all. Betty arrived one day last year as a mystery, was quickly adopted, and Pearl was brought in to be her comrade in hyjinx. They are incredible at herding cats. These two chickens living in the heart of the financial district are quite popular, and even have their own website. It’s all quite comical, watching them at play and how they react to life around them.
“When work becomes play, and play becomes your…

Para conocernos hay que mirar la tierra roja, el mar, los frutos y la luz… todas esas cosas que, aunque no son exactamente las mismas, permanecen siempre. Se transforman sin perderse. Los huertos y los surcos parecen nuevos cada año pero siguen siendo los mismos aunque hayan sido labrados por otros hace ya mucho tiempo. Nuevas viñas, otras casas, …. pero las mismas arrugas en rostros morenos castigados por el sol y las mismas manos ásperas.
Los que vinieron primero bañaron de leyendas las tierras, de causas y de explicaciones. Nos dejaron imágenes de sufrimiento, tambores y cada vez menos árboles. Pero un pueblo no es, está. Lo que hace, es ocupar un espacio. Por eso evoluciona, crece y se transforma. Nuestras vidas no son idénticas a las de los que nos precedieron pero tampoco son mucho más diferentes, según cómo se mire. Heredamos el pasado, pero también podemos cambiar…
