Posted by Jym Gregory on

Occasionally I use one of my Jym Shorts articles to let you know what some of the staff and/or elders have on their reading desks. I do this not to say “look at what we are doing,” but to simply encourage you to be reading good books both for your edification and your enjoyment...

I’m out of town this week on a hiking trip with some of our youth from the church (returning today as a matter of fact, Lord willing), so I thought I would reprint an article I wrote some years back for the Jym Shorts column. I think it is a story worth reading again, and since it is my...

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. -James 1:27  What if you could not take care of your children or were about to lose custody of them due to any number...

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. -Proverbs 18:10 I had a great fear of the dark as a child.

"My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world."  -John 18:36 Jesus is not asking us to fight physical battles on his behalf. The days of ethnic...

"Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts." -Zechariah 4:6 History seems to tell us that almost every movement of God starts small. From finding a lost book of the law in the days of King Josiah, to the preaching of a desert hermit named John in the days of Jesus...
