The Outsider

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

remember that you were at that time separated from Christ…having no hope and without God in the world. — Ephesians 2:12 Being a junior high girl can be rough. As I look back on it now, it wasn’t that other kids were really mean to me. I wasn’t bullied or overtly...

The Origin Of Racism

Posted by William Battle on

Racism isn’t a genetic trait. It’s a learned behavior, a product of social norms, history, stereotypes and prejudices, right? Well, not so fast. For the student taking an undergraduate class in sociology or anthropology, this is of course the typical response. But for the Christian...

No Longer Alone

Posted by Laci Prewitt on

In 5th grade, I went to new school where I knew no one. In 7th grade, a new church. I went to college without any friends, I came to c|Life Sunnyvale as an employee before making any new relationships, and I can think of about 20 other times when I felt like a stranger in a new situation...

Let There Be Life

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

I’ve worked at many places over the years where pranks were a pretty common occurrence. And, while there were some pretty complicated long cons, my favorite was one of the more simple ones. Simple, yet elegant. It involved a very realistic-looking rubber snake and some fishing line tied to...

From Death To Life

Posted by Joe Paris on

The Bible is called a book of hope and a book of joy, yet somehow quite possibly the saddest sentence in all of world history is found in Ephesians: As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, — Ephesians 2:1 NIV Do you hear what Paul is saying to the church in Ephesus?...
