That's why we've dedicated a section of our website to provide the very latest information about the speakers and ministries we serve--and about us, too. Come take a look at "what's new"--or use the sidebar options to take a deeper look at areas of particular interest.

Trivia: "SACRED COLORS"

Color WheelProtected from competitor use, can you name the company and color(s) that are so highly identified with the brand, they are unuseable by any other (same kind of) company:

1-Think tractors in Iowa.

2-Accidentally created by inventor/scientist Spencer Silver, this office "staple" was originally a hard sell until the company distributed free samples.

3-Every little boy's dream to operate (even if a small version) their bulldozers, cranes, dump trucks, et al.

4-Audrey Hepburn dreamed of starting the day with a meal here :).

5-"America's Fastest 4G LTE Network" ... at the moment, so they say.

6-Their stores ...

Bringing out the God-flavors

salt shakerLet me tell you why you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

-Matthew 5:13, MSG


I don't usually read The Message translation of the Bible.  But in church last weekend, my pastor shared Matthew 5:13 from this version.  He asked, "What good is it to be salt if you never leave the salt shaker?"  If we're ...

Religious Freedom Day

Last Friday on The Garlow Perspective, Jim Garlow became the subject of his own feature as part of an Alliance Defending Freedom case in California.  Seven California churches, of which Jim's is one, are being forced to pay for elective abortions in their employee health insurance plans.

The state's rule, Jim says, defies every fiber of his being:  "I feel that not only [that] the killing of babies in the womb is wrong foundationally, but as a father who had the privilege of adopting four children . . . was repulsive beyond words."

The Heritage Foundation featured more of Jim's ...

Christian Radio Sharing About the Importance of Life

I was among the many who went to the movie theaters over the holidays. I saw two movies which told about the true life stories of two men who changed lives and, even saved lives.

As I watched the stories of Louis Zamperini and Chris Kyle unfold on the big screen, each life depicting a unique journey which impacted so many, I couldn't help but marvel at the significance of every person's life.

In both "Unbroken" and "The American Sniper," we learn about the humble beginnings of both men and we're taken on the adventure which was ...

Why We Need a Savior

Christmas is just two days away and I wanted to share with you a special message from Nancy Leigh DeMoss as shared in her one-minute daily feature, "Seeking Him."  Nancy said . . .

"Unto you is born this day a Savior." Words like that can slip off our lips so easily around this time of year. Those who have been around the things of God for a long time can take it for granted.

But it's helpful during a time of decorations and celebration to remember how desperately we need a Savior. In a season of tinsel and lights, we need ...
