Sound-bite Religion

For far too long the Christian church has been infected with the disease of using snippets of God’s Word to defend our opinions. We have become a sound-bite religion. Choosing an opinion or a pulpit message first, then fortifying it with a quick look at our Strong’s Concordance.
We must embrace the discipline of studying the Word of God and trying to fully understand the balance of everything Jesus had to say on a subject. We must understand context and subtext thoroughly, and not merely base our faith on which poetic lines serve our jones best. God’s Word is not here to serve the servant. We the servants are here to serve God.
And believe me, we are in the wilderness.

Mommy and Me

Mommy and me is a Hudson based support group for new moms. It is a group that is formed of Moms with various backgrounds and is designed to encourage, inform and help in any way it can any mommy that is seeking help in its role as a parent. Because children don't come into this world with care instructions, the exciting journey as a Mom can be at times overwhelming. By educating herself and learning more about her bundle of joy, the new Mommy becomes much more confident in the care she provides for her child. After the baby's arrival, so many things change: the lack of sleep, the everyday routine, the intensive care the little person needs that moms often become very quickly depleted of their resources and start feeling low.

God's Will

“Doing the will of God from the heart” (Eph. 6:6) is the only kind of doing His will that is of any value. The soul who has surrendered his will to God, is the only soul who can do His will “from the heart.” It is for this reason that we say that the essence of true virtue consists, not in the state of our emotions nor in the greatness of our illuminations nor in the multitude of our good works, but simply and only in the attitude of the will.
