Christmas, Prophecy Fulfilled!

With Christmas season at its peak, I find it helpful to remind myself of why I am celebrating. If I don’t stop and do this I can easily get caught up in the world’s rush and forget the One who I need to be honoring! A great way for me is, reading the prophecy of Christ, in the Old Testament and following it up with the fulfillment in the New Testament. This is powerful in strengthening my faith and my…

Happy Thanksgiving 2020 from Christian Activities!

Thanksgiving 2020: How can we be thankful with COVID-19, an unresolved Presidential election, business closures, mask mandates, and social distancing? Thanksgiving 2020 is perhaps the most unusual Thanksgiving we have had since November 2001 following 9/11.

Not since then has our country faced such upheaval as we…

Proverbs 31: A Wife of Noble Character

Who Can Find a Wife of Noble Character? It is not easy to find a virtuous woman in these modern feminist times. Proverbs 31 is from the sayings of King Lemuel, king of Massa and considered an oracle. These verses form an acrostic–each verse beginning with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The formatting of the verses into a poetic style lend some weight as to how important the qualities of a virtuous woman are. 10. A wife of noble…

A Father’s Hope, Poem

A poem by a dad from our 2011 archives I hope when you come home, and the church bells start ringing,You’ll remember the years and the days you had here.That this house will engulf you, with lavender breezeswhen the Lilacs have bloomed and their essence appeases.I hope when you come home, and the church bells start ringing,that comfort surrounds you like a mother’s embrace.That this house was a home and a castle of graceAnd your soul was caressed by the…

Thanksgiving History

What is the history of Thanksgiving Day? In December of 1620, a small group of colonists from England landed near Plymouth, Massachusetts, and built a settlement there. The first winter was filled with storms, deprivations, and disease, which took nearly half the colonists’ lives. However, hope was renewed the next year when the harvest proved to be bountiful.

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving is a great time to pause and consider… If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death,…
