Recently, Syria has been torn apart by civil war. Peaceful communities have been transformed into combat zones and many have sought refuge in other countries. 

But from all the chaos, something unexpected has emerged…

High up on Cherubim mountain, overlooking an ancient pilgrim road that once linked Jerusalem to Constantinople, a massive 105-foot statue of Christ has risen into being. Assembled over the span of three days, the statue stands on the edge of a Greek Orthodox monastery and serves as a reminder of Christ’s continuing work in this world.

You might not know who Ray Harryhausen is, but I’m sure you’ve seen some of his movies. He was the driving creative force behind such films as Clash of the Titans, Mighty Joe Young and Jason & the Argonauts. With the magic of stop-motion animation, Harryhausen brought Greek mythology to life, allowed people to fly and always helped the hero defeat the monster.

Have you ever watched a Miss America Pageant? During the show, the host asks each contestant what they would hope for. Almost every time, contestants give the answer “world peace.” It happens so often that this response has become a cliché.

But is world peace really such an unattainable idea? I’d like to say, “With Christ, it’s not!”

And every detail of his life will continue to make the news in the years ahead.

Most of us have had those times in our prayer lives when we aren’t quite sure how to pray for a difficult situation.

Charles Spurgeon once wrote: “How can I pray? My mind wanders: I chatter like a crane; I roar like a beast in pain; I moan in the brokenness of my heart, but oh, my God, I know not what it is my inmost spirit needs; or if I know it, I know not how to frame my petition aright before thee.”

Have you ever seen one of these?

It’s an original Jesus Doll. This one was made about sixty years ago. And it’s probably a collector’s item now. It was made at a time when the idea of ‘personality dolls’ was becoming popular. Barbie also first appeared around this time.

I recently officiated at the wedding of a friend’s daughter. I’ve known this young lady for quite a while and was thrilled to be included in her special day.

As I stood at the altar and watched father and daughter walking down the aisle toward us, I was momentarily overcome with emotion as I realized how beautiful the bride looked and how proud her father was as he escorted her to the groom standing beside me.

For more than two years a friend of mine was perplexed because he kept finding water in the middle of his basement floor. It seemed logical to him that it was coming from equipment in his basement, so he did everything he could to fix the problem – looking for leaks, checking every valve and drain. Still, every few days, he’d find the same puddle of water on the floor.

I imagine everyone who has ever said a prayer has wondered at some time if that prayer got past the ceiling. The image of a prayer not reaching God but instead being blocked is a sentiment I have heard quite a few folks describe.

Many believe even if the prayer does get through they still have to do something special in order for God to answer their prayers.
