Building a Culture of Life

Followers of Jesus Christ believe that every person is created in the image of God and should be treated with dignity and respect (Genesis 1:26-26; cf. Matthew 19:4). To affirm that all people are image-bearers of God means that we must reject every sinful mistreatment of others and we must work to protect the weak, the powerless, the vulnerable – including orphans, widows, those with disabilities, those abused and trafficked, the aged and infirm, and, yes, even those being knit...

Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude

When our lives are transformed by God’s grace and filled with the Spirit, one of the results will be a grateful heart.  We will approach every day, every relationship, and every circumstance with a bias toward giving thanks. Perhaps that’s why the Apostle Paul mentions gratitude and thanksgiving three different times in the space of just six verses (Colossians 3:12-16) that describe who we are and how we are to live in Christ.  This powerful passage concludes by saying: And...
