Homes and offices are being decorated. Parties are being planned.
Family get-togethers are being decided. And the malls are
getting crazier than ever. Looking at the hard-to-navigate parking
lots, long lines, and highly stressed customer service staff is
enough to make even the most seasoned shopper sweat.

But it doesn’t have to be this way – and we can help.

A Gift of Compassion is the perfect gift alternative for your friends,
family, co-workers and clients. No crowds, no lines, no
stress – just a gift that will help make a difference in the life of a
child living in one of the poorest communities of the world.
Your gift will help provide clean drinking water, medical treatment,
disaster relief, food supplies and much, much more for
Compassion – assisted children and their families. Meet real needs and
bring real joy with a Gift of Compassion.

Have you grown tired of the media headlines telling you what this or that person “should do” about the latest controversy? He should arrest that person. She should sue that guy. This company should be avoided. That location should be applauded. In a world of should and shouldn’t, the Bible offers a refreshing word of […]

While many Christians celebrated the resurrection of Jesus last weekend, Monday quickly shifts priorities. Instead of the joy of the risen Christ, there is the daily commute, packing lunches for kids headed to school, or other daily tasks that can quickly erase the excitement of the previous day. Easter is the high point for those […]

I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee, America’s “most Bible-minded city” as well as the city with the nation’s highest percentage of church attendance. Yet these accolades offered little help to many of those struggling in the city’s urban center.
