Not my gift?

14 Mar | 2014

I confess that the subject matter of this edition’s feature had me somewhat flummoxed. Hospitality. It’s something my mother-in-law excels at, but to which I am not similarly gifted.

Life after a disaster

Our greatest need

15 Nov | 2013

The small group I’m part of at church has been studying the New Testament book of Hebrews, which isn’t one of those books you’d recommend to a Bible-reading newbie.

Embrace life's challenges

4 Nov | 2013

This edition profiles The Salvation Army’s work at the Howard Hospital in Zimbabwe. This hospital has given valued practical service to its local community for almost a century, although recently it has faced some personnel and funding challenges
