The Refugee Crisis
It seems that everyone is talking about the Syrian refugee crisis. While much has been written about what we shouldn’t do, I want to share what we can do. While our government works toward a solution to prevent terrorists from entering our country, as Christians, we are commanded to care for those in need. We simply cannot use the Bible
Leadership Traits Needed by Our Nation’s Leaders
I’m already sick of the constant bickering by political candidates. We have a desperate need for strong leadership in our world today. So what does that type of leadership look like? What characteristics and traits should we be looking for in our leaders? Unfortunately, I feel that many people in our country are looking at the wrong qualities for our leaders.
This is a Powerful Argument Against Abortion
Whatever political viewpoint you hold, I urge you to watch this video. This is from an older Matt Chandler sermon, but it has been shared widely the last few weeks.

Happy 4th of July
These ladies were at Cornerstone back in December. Enjoy their newest video and enjoy your day with family and friends celebrating our freedom.
I have cut back on the number of posts here on the blog over the past year.

Unless you have been on a remote island, you have been inundated with opinions, so I will spare you all the details. As someone who watches the show and enjoys it, my comments are from the
Duck Dynasty Featured on I Am Second
I have really enjoyed watching the testimonies on the I am Second website over the past few years. The cinematography is great, and the message is always focused on Jesus. The latest video is a long one at almost 30 minutes, and it features the Robertson family from Duck Dynasty. I encourage you to set aside some time and watch
Bluegrass in the Mountains
Our city just finished up the 78th Annual Old Fiddler’s Convention. It is the largest and oldest fiddler’s convention in the world. Thousands of people camp in our local city park for the week-long festival of bluegrass and old-time music, and thousands more come to listen and enjoy the mountain music.

The Bible Miniseries
I’m excited about a new miniseries premiering on the History Channel this weekend. Christians have long complained about the content of movies and tv, and we now have the opportunity to show our support to a series based on the Bible.
