    Being ready for the return of Christ. The parables of Jesus in Matthew 25 give us a model for being ready. First Sunday of Advent, Year B

    It’s hard to believe that Christmas season is upon us again. The craziness has begun.

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Sep 10, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    Most of us, especially in our younger years, spend an awful lot of effort in trying not to look foolish. Most of us, particularly when we are young and growing and think our bodies are all out of proportion anyway, will go to great lengths to hide our deficiencies and keep from looking foolish. more

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Oct 5, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    Evil and good live side by side, so we need to accept our sinfulness in order to receive our salvation. God in Christ takes on Himself the penalty we should receive.

    It would seem that the negative things in life grow of their own accord, but that the good things, positive things, take a lot of work. If you are at all a pessimist, you will agree that bad things, destructive things, just happen. Nobody has to make them happen. They happen on their own. But good more
