What are some of the earliest memories from your childhood? As a child of the 1980’s, I remember how dark every room of our house seemed with our shiny wood paneling that was all the rage then (and that still persists behind a recent coat of white paint.) You know the kind. It is the first thing torn down on every home improvement show. All of the spaces I inhabited as a child felt so big, filled with different textures...

Today is Monday, November 02, 2020, one day before what is considered to be the most important election our nation has ever experienced. Polling results are ever changing and it’s anyone’s guess regarding outcomes. The presidential seat might be named in the not-so-near future if ballots are disputed.

This was how I ended a Psalm 150 family discipleship guide, written to help parents and children discuss the lessons learned from this week’s study of Psalm 150, the final psalm of the book and the final psalm of our teaching series.

If you who haven’t had a chance to check out part one, you can find it here or here. For the big changes that our country and the Church need to make, and I know a lot of people aren’t going to like this, we are going to have to spend money. Charitable giving from individuals, organizations, and churches to initiatives is vital. Giving is something we can’t possibly do enough of.
But it will also take taxpayer money in some...
