The Whisper After the Storm

Posted by Sherman Chau on

The heavens black with clouds and wind. A great rain. A wind so strong wind that it tears the mountains and breaks rocks into pieces. Sounds like a description of Typhoon Mangkhut on Sunday but this is actually an old weather report. Really old, like from the Old Testament old. It was...

Freedom

Posted by Brett Hilliard on

Freedom. It’s a word that is in our headlines all the time.  Freedom of speech. Political freedom. Economic freedom. Sexual freedom. Amid all the fuss about freedom, little is mentioned about spiritual freedom. Sometimes spiritual freedom is often misconstrued as the...

Save Me: Yes or No?

Posted by Kevin Lau on

Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, Lord, to help me. May those who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” turn back because of their shame. But may all who seek you rejoice...
