    In 1637, Eilenburg, Saxony, was surrounded by the dark night of the soul. Europe was at war. Eilenburg was tossed back and forth by the armies. Three times during that year it was attacked and severely damaged. When the armies left, refugees poured in by the thousands. Diseases ran rampant. Food was scarce.

    There was only one pastor in the city, a fellow named Martin Rinkart. His...

    Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7; Psalm 66:1-12
    Reading an anecdote from Michael Shannon led me to research a well-known scientist and botanist of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century named Curtis G Lloyd. One of the final things he did was set up the Lloyd Wildlife Area in Crittenden, Kentucky. No axe ever has disturbed the 20-acre plot or ever will. When he died, Curtis’...

    Hello, everyone! (Let them respond.) I have another story for you today. Are you ready? (Let them respond.) Great!

    One day there were some men walking down the road. There were ten 10 men, and they were all very sick. The doctor had told them they had a disease called leprosy and told them they needed to go see the priest at the temple. But they didn’t all walk...

    Praxis the pixie was in trouble again. In fact, Praxis was rarely out of trouble. It had all started when he'd begun to be himself. You see, Praxis changed colour when he felt strongly about anything, and so for quite a while he'd tried very hard to be good. But it hadn't worked, for instead of being just one colour, blue or yellow or green or pink or purple or red, he'd...

    Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds among mortals.
    -- Psalm 66:5

    There are times when praise is the only proper response to our experience in life. Psalm 66 guides us in the way of praise. Praise is more than just an exclamation of joyful feelings. Praise is both a memory and a testimony. The response to answered prayer is a desire to have everyone...

    "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (v. 10). "Perfect love casts out fear" (1 John 4:18). These two powerful statements reveal for us the inadequacies of the translation process of the English language. These two juxtaposing passages reveal only a tiny fraction of the contradictions and conflicts found within our holy Word. No wonder people have trouble reading and understanding....

    1. Text

    On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee.11 As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance,12 they called out, saying, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!"13 When he saw them, he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were made clean.14 Then one of them, when...

    I went to the store to buy a new pair of blue jeans. The clerk asked if I wanted slim fit, easy fit, or relaxed fit, regular or faded, stone washed or acid washed, button fly or regular fly ... and that's when I started to sputter. Can't I just have a pair of blue jeans, size fourteen? Then I went to the grocery store and found 85 varieties of crackers, 285 kinds of cookies, and thirteen...

    In a scene from the romantic comedy, While You Were Sleeping, "Ox" Callaghan is waxing eloquent at the breakfast table one morning about those rare moments in life when everything seems to be going just right and falling into place.
