Do You Participate in Jesus’ General Assembly?

Today's article has a two-fold purpose. First, it is brief commentary on the United Nations General Assembly's (UNGA) recent resolutions to disavow Jewish ties to the Temple Mount, to the call for Israel to return to pre-1967 state lines, and to withdraw from the Golan.

Christmas 2020: What Child is This?

2020 cannot escape my yearly Christmas message. In past years I've highlighted reflections on different Christmas hymns, but this year I'll start with a very short story.

Unity: The Inconvenient Necessity

John 17, Jesus prayed that we would be one, as He and the Father are one. I've heard a lot of sermons on this passage and many of them have been great. A key focus of these many sermons has been the issue of denominational unity. Christ isn't divided, as the Apostle Paul tells the ...
