The Heart of Christmas

Posted by on Jan 6, 2015 in Anamnesis (History), Blog | 0 comments

In the 4th century A.D., in the Greek province of Lycia (part of modern day Turkey), there lived a man named Nikolaus of Myra. In this Lycian town of Myra, Nikolaus was a Christian bishop and was strong in the faith. Nikolaus’ reputation greatly preceded him as a secret gift-giver – being known to leave coins in shoes that were left out for him. In fact, he became so well known for his giving that he was also called Nikolaus the Wonderworker. (more…)

Faces of Liberate – Jeromy

Posted by on Dec 3, 2014 in Blog, The Bulletin (Liberated News) | 0 comments

Jeromy Darling is a distinctly kind and likeable guy. He is incredibly musical, yet genuinely meek and down-to-earth. He is abundantly kind to each person he meets and carries with him a joyful disposition, whatever the situation. I attribute these and other meaningful facets of his person to the life of Jesus Christ in him.
Jeromy is not perfect, but Jesus is perfect. (more…)

Empty Calories

The question came to me some time ago, but the answer pended and so the question remained. Until I arrived in Germany, I had not the appropriate time to devote the necessary thought. Now I have.

A Prophet Like No Other

Posted by on Oct 28, 2014 in Blog, Champions of Truth (Spiritual Giants) | 0 comments

Long before America – with its dreams and wars, before modern inventions and philosophies, and even before the Word of God became flesh, died on a cross, and rose again- there lived a man named Isaiah. Isaiah lived during the 7th and 8th centuries B.C. in Jerusalem of Judah. He was a man of conviction and faith. He ministered to many, kings and commoners alike, and he preached for perhaps the latter 60 years of his life. Isaiah’s ministry likely began in 740 B.C. (contemporaneously with the final years of King Uzziah’s reign) and lasted until shortly after 680 B.C. (more…)

Paul of Tarsus

Compared to one characteristic of Rome in the first century, a prison today is, well, rather cozy. Where once there was complete neglect, there now exists extensive healthcare; beds and cells have taken the place of iron chains and dark pits; people are rewarded for good behavior rather than being lashed for disobedience.

Faces of Liberate – Dirk

I first met Dirk about three years ago as I attended a student group meeting on the University of Minnesota campus. Dirk was one of the leaders with the Rock church, and he was immediately kind and eager to encourage. He frequently stopped me to offer kind words and his support with whatever endeavor or goal I was pursuing, especially in the area of music. I saw him somewhat frequently from then on, and I got to witness the joy of his family at different gatherings, but I did not take much initiative to talk to him beyond general “hellos.”

What I Mean By “Liberated”

Posted by on Oct 5, 2014 in Blog, Thought Closet (Emotional Reflections) | 0 comments

I have been liberated by Jesus Christ.

If you don’t think you understand what I mean by this, let me tell you what I mean. If you think you understand what I mean by this, let me tell you what I actually mean. (more…)
