Bald Knob Cross – Southern Illinois

Jim and Mary Snider are some of the most excellent hosts you will meet in the promoting business.  The Truthseekers’ Homecoming, held at the Marion Cultural and Civic Center, is a place where you feel at home the moment you step in the building; a feeling that all of the Truthseekers lavish upon each attendee. …

Have you ever noticed how photos portray writers?  Nine chances out of ten the photo had him (or her!) seated on a nice cushy chair, pen in hand, expensive looking leather bound notebook sitting on their lap with a gaze directed out a window lost in thought.  Oh, and don’t forget a coffee mug on…

Places of the Perfect Man – the Garden

In our last devotional, The Upper Room, I wanted to introduce the thought of how our Lord has a perfect understanding of life – not just because He’s omniscient and knows everything about our life from beginning to end, but because His earthly ministry was literally a perfect life, yet, others didn’t appreciate Him for…

Places of the Perfect Man – the Upper Room

  The account of the Upper Room (Passover) can be found in all four Gospels (Matthew 26:17-30, Mark 14:12-26, Luke 22:7-39, and John 13-17).  What happened there is summed up within 10 verses or so in some of the books, but in John it spans five chapters.  I really enjoyed the detail in John’s account. …

Easter 2012 – Just One Drop…

So…blood is powerful, isn’t it?  While doing the research for these posts, I learned a lot about blood and how it functions in our bodies.  Quotes like this grabbed my attention, *1“Every three seconds someone needs blood,” and “There is no substitute for human blood.” That’s some powerful information, and I’m not sure I grasp…

Easter 2012 – The Healing Stream Of 2000 + Years

“It’s a healing stream, a fountain, an eternal cleansing flood.” For the last few posts we’ve been taking a deeper look into the importance of the blood of Jesus Christ.  Today, I would like to take a different approach to the same subject and do a little “compare and contrast” with the blood in our…
