Gilligan's Island and the Seven Deadly Sins

"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip, that started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship...”

When I read those words, I actually hear the tune in my head.  Maybe you do too.  Clearly, I spent way too many hours growing up watching this very frustrating and banal sit com. 

I confess, I’m a little ashamed that I know the words to that song.  It seemed like everyone at a recent birthday party knew too.  One of the guests actually ...

What We All Need This Easter

Carter Conlon_TSC"Much of what is taught in this generation, and even in a couple that have already passed, is simply a gospel that looks to see what it can gain from the Cross of Jesus Christ."  —Carter Conlon

She goes on to ask, "Will you wish you'd taught ...

Stepping Out in Faith

Walking out in faithWe know God wants us to step out in faith, but I have to admit my doubts often step in.  I wonder if I'm really hearing God correctly, and if this decision will turn out to be a wrong choice I'll regret. 

I was reading Elizabeth George's "A Woman after God's Own Heart Devotional" and read a story about Rebekah.  Elizabeth writes, "When Rebekah was asked to travel to a faraway place to become the wife if Isaac, her words were, "I will go" (Genesis 24:58).  "I will go...with a stranger."  "I will go ...
