Was a Reformation Needed Then? Is a Reformation Needed Now?

Introduction   It is always a puzzle for people in the Church how so many denominations came about. 

When we look at the Acts of the Apostles we find that, as far as we can see, there was only one church.  Sure, the book of Acts is not the whole story of how the church grew.  We don’t know, for instance, about Barnabas’s ministry with John Mark in Cyprus (Acts 15:39).

The Protester, the Dissident, and the Christian

The protests and riots that have exploded in the United States and even globally since the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, have taken my mind back to 2011, a year in which Time magazine declared “The Protester” to be its person of the year. [2] Few years in recorded history before 2011 were so strongly characterized by a sense that something is terribly wrong with the whole world.

In A Time of Pandemic, LIFT UP YOUR HEARTS

In A Time of Pandemic, LIFT UP YOUR HEARTS

If our hearts are our emotional houses, we have lived in them, as in our literal homes, too long and too exclusively the past few months. I can tell that people are losing their sense of proportion.

Helping Paul and Trophimus: Doing Life With One Another

 “I left Trophimus sick at Miletus” (2 Timothy 4:20)

A Biblical Response to Personal and Societal Problems

A Biblical Response to Personal and Societal Problems

In our Bible reading this morning (6/20/2020), Susan and I came to the ninth chapter of Daniel. What we read seemed to be an appropriate prayer, with, of course, some adjustments, for the USA (and maybe some other countries) in light of present circumstances. Susan and I prayed that prayer and I copy it below for the consideration of other WRF members:

Encouragement and Prayers for the Graduates in Your Life

For many of our youngsters this graduation season, masks and sanitizer are replacing caps and gowns; e-certificates will arrive online instead of sheepskin diplomas.
