By Dave Henning / November 25, 2022

“At first glance [the Christmas story] looks like the other legends. . . .  We read that and think, Another great fairy tale!  Indeed, it looks like the Christmas story is one more story pointing to these underlying realities.  But Matthew’s Gospel refutes that by grounding Jesus in history, not ‘once upon a time’. .

By Dave Henning / November 21, 2022

Two different celebrations – Christmas

By Dave Henning / November 20, 2022

“Christmas is the only Christian holy day that is also a major secular holiday — arguably our culture’s biggest.  The result is two different celebrations. . . .  This brings some discomfort on both sides.  Many Christians can’t help but notice that more and more of the public festivities surrounding Christmas studiously avoid any references […]

Faith always involves risk

By Dave Henning / November 14, 2022

“Faith always involves risk, and God wants you to take a risk on Him because He knows He’s dependable. . . .  So even though He’s invisible to your eyes, you have His written Word. . . .  He creates opportunities for you to take a risk on what He’s said.  Oftentimes, He does that […]
