Never forget terribleness of sin

Sept. 11 will never be the same in our country again. It always will stand out as the day our country was attacked by terrorists – the day thousands lost their lives and a day that causes many to realize that life is uncertain, even in the United States.

What do we wantfor our children

When I was growing up, like many of you, we were what I considered poor. We primarily wore hand-me-downs. At Christmas, we unwrapped one special present and then some type of new clothes – always underwear and socks.

Seek truth to avoid misjudging

As human beings, we love to pronounce judgment on a lot of things. What is interesting is that we like to voice our judgment on things that really don't amount to much – sometimes even arguing passionately.

Rise of the idol-crushing kings

If the heart of man is, as John Calvin described it, "an idol-making factor," then the way in which those idols are destroyed should be of utmost importance to us.

Even a basketball game with a one-point difference doesn't feel like that.
