Here is an extract from an excellent article I found on The Two Block Mission Field Last year, our pastor in suburban Cincinnati challenged us at the holidays to pray for our neighbors by name, take them some baked goods, and then seek opportunities to invite them into our home. I confess that, first, we had to figure out most of their names in order to pray for them. When we did visit them with our jars of holiday snack mix, all of the neighbors were delighted that someone had finally instigated “neighborhood.” Most notably, when they started visiting our ...

What is Gentleness?
Written by Lizzie Cooke This blog originally featured on Lizzie’s own personal blog page in a series on the fruits of the spirit. You can find more here-  I think it took so long for me to work out what to say about gentleness because it’s quite a difficult word to define. When we use it in everyday conversation, we use it to mean a combination of kindness and love without anger or sharp words. It then seems perhaps a little odd that it is a separate fruit of the spirit, as love and kindness are already fruits? One bible dictionary ... More

Why? Because decisions are made by those in the room! But when it comes to being involved in politics, some Christians don’t seem to think we should be in the room at all, for fear of compromising our faith. “Render under Caesar that which is Caesar’s, to God that which is God’s”, we were told, as ...

How Can You Live Without Sex?
Wow, this is a powerful article about the beauty of a celibate life committed to God. Some quotes from the article: “It’s hard to see how Scripture could be any more positive about the celibate life.” “Love isn’t just communicated by the sex one has had, but also by the sex one hasn’t had.” “To deny someone sex is not to condemn him or her to a life empty of intimacy and full of loneliness. Loneliness will never be entirely absent (it isn’t absent in the most successful marriages and nuclear families), but intimacy can be present in close friendships and your church family.” “Lying in bed ...
