The Process of Conversion BY: Preston Jones I always say that I became a Christian on September 13, 1981, at the end of my first week as a freshman in high school. I had gone through other conversion-like experiences before, but this was different.
Marriage: Is There a Place Between Cynicism and Idolatry? BY: Mardi Keyes Marriage is a good gift of God. And like all of God’s gifts, it can function as an idol, or God substitute. Marriage can also function as a means of serving other idols.
Who Invented Adolescence? BY: Mardi Keyes I have come to realize that what our culture calls and associates with “adolescence” is not a universal phenomenon. In fact, it is a very recent historical phenomenon.
A Merer Christianity BY: Preston Jones For a long time I found it perplexing that some of the most politically chaotic regions of the world are also places either where Christianity has been strong for some time or is now growing rapidly.
King Kong (Peter Jackson, 2005) BY: Marc LiVecche Adhering to the same basic storyline of the 1933 original, Jackson's Kong follows vaudeville actress Ann Darrow as she embarks with a film crew to a land thought only to exist in seafaring legend.
Their Blood Cries Out (Paul Marshall, 1997) BY: Paul Marshall The persecution of Christians worldwide is perhaps the largest single human rights issue in the world today, and one which is all but ignored in the Churches and in the secular world.
Mr. Holland's Opus (Stephen Herek, 1995) BY: Rick Mattson Be patient with Mr. Holland’s Opus. Plot and character development come out swinging at the bell, but later the story settles, works on you, widens and deepens. Before you know it, you’re drawn unexpectedly into a small epic...
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I don’t much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
