Memorial Day at Indian Creek – Friday Night

If you were going to tack on a theme to the first two nights of the Memorial Day sing at Indian Creek, it could easily be this – live music.  Thursday night, we enjoyed the Primitive Quartet and Jeff & Sheri Easter who both have live bands.  Friday night, we heard more groups with great…

Memorial Day at Indian Creek – Thursday Night

American flags lined the top of the tent and gently waved with the cool breeze.  At the top of the hill, golf carts and ATVs idled in the parking lot, waiting to transport fans of Gospel music to the tent below. As you walked by the Snack Shack, you could smell the aroma of good…

Hebrew Word Study – Chaim Bentorah

Don’t let the title fool you…the book really isn’t a word study in the sense that you will be speaking Hebrew by the time you turn the last page.  Actually, I would consider this book a devotional that focuses on one Hebrew word per chapter, with some added stories from the author for affect. The…

Munich Signature – Bodie Thoene

The Jews are desperate to leave Germany – but no country will take them.  Hitler has his sights set on Czechoslovakia – and no country will stop him. We often hear the phrase, “You don’t know what tomorrow holds.”  After reading this book and re-living the reality that many people faced in the events leading…

The Lost Books of the Bible: 13 Controversial Texts

Do you know that feeling you get when someone who is not a Christian says, “I just don’t get the Bible.  It’s confusing,” and though you try to understand their point of view, you can’t, because you’ve been around the Bible your whole life?  Well, if you want to know how those folks feel, try…

Home of the Second Half Quartet

The last evening of the Truthseekers Homecoming was upon us.  As people buzzed around the lobby chatting with artists and buying that box of popcorn, I couldn’t help but replay the events of the day.  The Prayer Breakfast began with some amazing biscuits and gravy provided by Stonefort Baptist. Their pastor, Jeff Owens, brought the…

Going Green…

When you go to a Gospel Sing on St. Patrick’s Day, you never know what might turn up being green.  At the Friday morning Prayer Breakfast, it was the donuts.  Yep, that’s right – green Krispy Kreme donuts!  The batter was dyed green but they tasted just the same.  There was also an assorted box…

When Angels Cry – Mary Lu Tyndall

After reading this book, you may come to the end with a desire to be more like Angelica, more interested in the spiritual battle spoken of in Ephesians chapter six and you will probably dislike a guy named Thomas.  (And I mean, really, really dislike…)  But one thing you won’t dislike is the switch the…

The Cross Left A Mark On Me – Truthseekers Homecoming

When I turn the calendar over to the month of March, there is one thing I always look forward to…and it’s not the erratic Missouri weather!  It’s the Truthseekers Homecoming in Marion, Illinois!  This three day event in Southern Illinois has been a favorite of mine for six years now.  Whether Mother Nature sends us…
