  • Miley Cyrus and the Disappearance of Childhood

    Michael Milton
    Miley Cyrus and the Disappearance of Childhood Sometimes I think the late Neil Postman is the prophet for out time. After reading about the Miley Cyrus photo fiasco, I am convinced of this. If you have a pre-teen daughter, you know that Miley is the star of "Hannah Montana," the hugely popular Disney television series. This 15-year-old is the singing-acting-dancing daughter of country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus. "Hannah Montana" and Disney have crafted the image of this young lady as a safe role model for little girls.

  • Preaching Doctrine with Flavor

    Jere L. Phillips
    Preaching Doctrine with Flavor Doctrinal sermons tend to sound like Systematic Theology 101, a lecture rather than a message from God. Wouldn't you like to hear a presentation of biblical truth that was like warm, moist brownies instead?
  • What's in the Box?

    Clifford E. Denay Jr.
    What's in the Box? I’m sitting in row seven watching Dr. Bob, our senior pastor, give today’s sermon for children. He raises a box and squints his eyes as though he is trying to figure out what is in it. Now most of us, children and adults alike, love guessing games. So, Dr. Bob calls his weekly children’s talk “What’s in the Box?” Talk about mystery. The kids love it. So do the adults. Especially me.

  • The pain in being a pastor

    Joshua Griffin
    The pain in being a pastor I've had some interesting conversations about this topic this week - there can be a lot of pain in ministry. The highs are really high but sometimes the lows can be really low. I heard one person suggest that being a pastor sometimes means you have a target on your back. Friends, being in the ministry is so worth it. Is it difficult? Yup. Will it test you in ways you don't want to be tested? Oh yeah.
