Alcohol and the Christian

04.17.20 | Village Distinctives

I mean not your own conscience, but the other man’s; for why is my freedom judged by another’s conscience? If I partake with thankfulness, why am I slandered concerning that for which I give thanks? Whether, then, you eat or drink...

      Church & Politics

      05.15.19 | Village Distinctives

        The active involvement by Christians and local churches in American politics is being advocated by many Christian leaders. This exhortation rarely addresses the question of whether it is best for Christians to become involved in the political...

        TJ Realized His Life Was Fake

        02.01.16 | Stories of Life Change

          My life was fake Quite simply, my life was fake and full of selfishness. I have the classic story of being raised in a Christian home and attended church on a regular basis when I was young. I was fortunate enough to attend private Christian...

          Darlette Couldn't Forgive Herself

          01.01.16 | Stories of Life Change

            I DEPENDED ON MYSELF As a young child I had someone very close to me take my innocence away. As a teenager and young adult, I looked for love in all the wrong ways and places. All my bad choices that I made, I blamed on what had happened to...

            05.01.14 | Stories of Life Change

              We lived and grew up in the city with all the amenities and opportunities, but my Dad’s side of the family, who are all Hindus, lived in the village in mud huts. My parents encouraged us to start our day reading God’s Word and praying. This...

              Paula Cried Out to the Lord

              05.01.14 | Stories of Life Change

                As I look back on my life, God was always there even when I walked away from Him. Before Christ, I was self centered, loud, grumbling and complaining. The list could go on and on. I had a Christ-sized hole in my heart.

                05.01.14 | Stories of Life Change

                  My life before I knew Christ was a very destructive lifestyle. I did everything to run the opposite direction of our Father. It was all about me. I was in charge of my life. I called the shots. I didn’t want anything to do with religion. My...

                  O Jesus! . . . Grant that I may become detached from all things and in all things seek you alone. Grant that I may direct my knowledge, my whole capacity, all my happiness, and all my exertions, to please you, to love you . . . Amen.Thomas...

                      This past winter I was blown away to find out that Ryan was driving from Sugar Grove over to the East side of Aurora to have a weekly Bible study with the boys from his UYM baseball team at the local McDonalds on Wednesday nights.

                        My heart has really gone out to the kids at a local Colombian orphanage. It is government run, however, the administration has allowed missionaries to come in and teach the Bible so long as we also incorporate English as a Second Language.

                          We’ve hosted a man from Cuba who came with only the clothes on his back, a Bhutanese pastor and his wife and 3 children, a Muslim family from Iraq (who insisted on doing all the cooking for a week), and most recently an Iraqi mom and 2 daughters.

                            I have always been interested in working with people from other cultures. When Jesus says, "Whatever you do to the least of these, my brothers, you have done unto me," these are the people he's talking about.
