Charles Schwab emails this thought-provoking note…
I found Kate Bowler’s recent well-written New York Times article, Death, the Prosperity Gospel and Me, both very interesting and very relevant. Link:

Ed Delph shares a seasonal thought-provoker…
Christmas is the greatest most perfectly complete rescue mission of all time in any time!

( September 9, 2015) Maureen McQuillan shares an encouraging testimony given this month by a remarkably bright (literally small) little lady:
Leanne John’s journey inspires Christians to trust God for everything, even in life’s dark moments.

Mark Ellis and associate Michael Ashcroft bring this testimony of a noted scientist finding God:
The current head of the National Institutes of Health, Francis S Collins, came to faith after he set out to disprove God.
‘I had always assumed that faith was based on purely emotional and irrational arguments and was astounded to discover that one could build a very strong case for the plausibility of God,’ he noted on CNN. ‘My earlier atheist’s assertion that “I know there is no God” emerged as the least defensible.’ (more…)

Mark Ellis brings this incredible testimony.
Every side of his pickup truck was completely smashed and compacted after Kaleb Whitby struck a semi from behind and was then hit by another semi in a highway pileup caused by morning fog and black ice.
Whitby literally walked away unscathed – with just two Band-Aids – after his Chevy Silverado was banged, spun, and ultimately came to rest in the vice-grip of parallel semi-trucks. By God’s protective hand, he narrowly escaped death. (more…)
