Let’s Get Real about Bethlehem!

posted by Ruth Graham

Last July the world seemed to wait with bated breath for the arrival of the little Prince of England. No detail was left unnoticed.   Hallmark and others have given us a very unrealistic picture of Bethlehem. Our Christmas cards are […]

The Spirit of Christmas

posted by Ruth Graham

My daughter and I had a delightful time yesterday. Each year we take a day to go to the small town of Lexington to see the decorations, visit the shops, go “junking,” as my Mother used to call it, find […]

Presents

posted by Ruth Graham

Christmas is here! We have shopped, bought, wrapped… the “perfect” present for each one on our list. Did I over spend? Did I forget someone? What have I overlooked? What about the birthday Boy? Have I overlooked Him? Each year […]

God’s Silence

posted by Ruth Graham

It had been a long 400 years of silence. Malachi had been the last “official” word from God. Now the silence was deafening. Life went on but where was God? Did He care? Did He leave them? Did He forget […]

Who am I and why am I here?
Back in the 1960s - 19870s there was this "youth revolution". Young people were questioning authority, rejecting authority...many of these youth we labeled, "hippies".

Good and Evil
The contrast between evil and good has been in the news and on our front pages this week. It was a thrill to see Dr. Brantley on the news yesterday as he left Emory University Hospital hand in hand with his wife. It is a miracle that he is alive and expected to live a full life. Ebola is a deadly

Rest, Elijah!
Many of us are familiar with the story of the great Old Testament prophet, Elijah. Quite a man. He confronted the wicked Queen Jezebel many times - stood for God's truth and authority at his own risk. Jezebel, with her husband, Ahab, were formidable, powerful, calculating adversaries. They struck t
