    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Apr 4, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    PALM SUNDAY: WILL HE REALLY DO IT? I wonder what mode of transport you would select for a King. A donkey wouldn't be top of my list, and although Barack Obama isn't a king, we've seen this week an array of 'stately' transportation available to him as he arrived at nearby Stansted Airport for the more

    based on 2 ratings

    GODLESS NATION? The Triumphal Entry represents Jesus' offer to be our King and Saviour both as a nation and individually. The response is mixed. Our nation barely recognizes Christianity as a viable choice and in its efforts to be inclusive has all but denounced Christianity as an option. Sure more

  • Something He Didn't Do

    Contributed by Josh Cougle on Apr 6, 2010

    SOMETHING HE DIDN'T DO My fourth daughter Kezzi is struggling through some things lately; one of them is lying. She's an obvious liar too. A month or so ago, someone left the milk out. Not a huge thing in itself, but Kezzi isn't supposed to pour the milk. Now that complicates it. I call all of more

  • Following The Masses

    FOLLOWING THE MASSES A few years ago I was walking down Prague's Wenceslaus Square when I coincidently, without realizing it, found myself in the middle of a protest. It was so easy to blend with them, to get into their middle and march with them, but once I tried to leave that mob, step out and more

    KYLE IDLEMAN: I CHEAPENED THE GOSPEL "Many of the fans turn to go home. I was struck by the fact that Jesus doesn't chase after them. He doesn't soften his message to make it more appealing. He doesn't send the disciples chasing after them with a creative handout inviting them to come back for a more

    KING FOR A DAY Once upon a time, before television, there was radio. You know what radio is--television without pictures.
