Upholding Marriage

Just days after the U.S. Supreme Court attempted to create a new category of so-called “rights” in the U.S. Constitution and in advance of Independence Day, a study, conducted by the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center in partnership with USA Today, found that that one-third of Americans can’t name any of the rights that the First Amendment guarantees.  According to a USA Today story, less than two-thirds of survey respondents – 57% vs. 68% a year ago -- were able to cite freedom of speech as one protected by the amendment. Only 19% were able to cite the freedom of religion, down from 29%.

It is rare to see a ministry serve at the length Fellowship of Christian Athletes has within our community, state, nation, and world.  They have been committed to coaches and students around the globe for more than 60 years, and they aren’t stopping. Don McClanen, founder and creator of FCA, said these words in May of 1954, while projecting his idea before a board: “For some time, I have had the idea of forming an organization of athletes and coaches in this hero-worshiping nation of ours.  If athletes can endorse shaving cream, razor blades, and cigarettes, surely they can endorse the Lord, too.  So my idea is to form an organization that would project you as Christian men before the youth and athletes of our nation.”

Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace

Something happened too terrible to put into words.  What can we do as Christians to come to peace with such a thing and help others do the same? So often we witness tragic losses over which we had no control to stop and no power to rectify. The list is long and covers the breadth of history from the Holocaust to the recent shootings in a Church in South Carolina.

Overcoming Hurt

It’s not unusual for others to take advantage of us—our talents and abilities, ideas, willingness to work—to ease their own load or make them look better. At first, we may enjoy the attention, and often pride factors in because we feel important or necessary. But it doesn’t take long to realize the relationship is more about usury than friendship, and when the person abandons us for a more useful or popular friend or makes us look foolish, the hurt we feel is real and sometimes overwhelming.

Starting Over, After Collapse

Once upon a time a four-year-old boy sat in a kitchen doorway stacking columns of blocks to make an imaginary building. His dad was a carpenter and brought home dozens of board scraps. He called them blocks.

Spiritual Friendship by Wesley Hill

 Have you ever had a friendship that entered into irrevocable decline because your friend just up and moved away? Have you ever had a friendship that ended over matters of convenience or preference? My guess is that most of us have experienced something like this at one time or another. And I wonder if this is an inevitable part of friendship, or whether it may just be a sign that we take friendship too lightly. Wesley Hill has been wondering the same and has written a thought-provoking book on the subject. In Spiritual Friendship he means to answer questions like these:

Oh No! Not Another Selfie!

I recently ministered in Brazil where there was a significant language barrier. Our team understood almost nothing of their Portuguese. However, we quickly found common linguistic ground when one of our ladies took out her camera, pulled one Brazilian lady close to her, taking a joint photo. The Brazilian woman said, “Selfie!” Though they could not understand, “May I have some water please?” they understood selfie.
