In stadiums all over the country, Major League baseball teams are fighting for a shot at the World Series trophy. But this year, one of the league’s landmark stadiums won’t be seeing much action. After 54 years of memories, including several All Star games, Super Bowls and even the Beatles’ final concert, San Francisco’s Candlestick Park is going to be demolished. It was a favorite for fans and teams, but after all those years, it had simply been outgrown. It was time to move on.

Truth in Advertising

Have you ever watched a TV advertisement that makes an offer that seems so outstanding, and the price so ridiculously cheap, that it seems too good to be true? At first you might be skeptical. But testimonial after testimonial pile up to confirm that this is indeed a miracle product – one that promises to transform your life. The price is just a fraction of what you might have to spend on similar products that don’t work as well.

Looking for Love...

Our English word “love” covers a wide variety of meanings, depending on context. But that was not a problem in the Greek-speaking world of the first century.

Discovering Adoption

One night in 1975, while waiting for his meal in a restaurant, Gary Klahr struck up a conversation with a man seated at the table next to him. His name was Steve Barbin. By the time they finished their meal, Gary and Steve had pushed their tables together and were well on the way to becoming best friends. Over time, they grew so close that they finished each other’s sentences and laughed at jokes that no one else seemed to understand. Gary told Steve he thought of him as a true brother.

Father's Day

For Christians, Father's Day is not only a time to celebrate fathers and fatherhood, but also a reminder of our heavenly Father’s unconditional love for all his children.

As we celebrate Father’s Day, I’m reminded of a friend of mine. Years ago, he took his young daughter to a concert. Not just any concert: it was the concert every young girl wanted to see – the boy band N’Sync.

Is Grace Too Good to Be True?

Non-believers and even some believers see God’s grace as something too good to be true. How about you?

I think most of us understand grace intellectually. But has the astonishing truth of God’s grace sunk in? It is one thing to accept grace as a doctrinal argument, but another for grace to be the truth that defines and thus transforms our lives.

Do Grace and Law Conflict?

God has provided a wonderful plan of salvation, based not on human merit but on his grace (Ephesians 2:8-9). This word “grace” has become shorthand for Christians. Some understand its meaning well, while others seem to view it as being in conflict with the idea of law. “Now that we are under grace, do we have to keep the law?” is a question Christians have asked for nearly 2,000 years. Paul addressed this question in his letter to the churches in Rome:

East From West

Each spring, we celebrate the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ, by which our sins are forgiven and our eternal future is assured. It was the greatest act of love we can imagine—although we can’t fully grasp the depth of that love. As Paul wrote to the Romans, “Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:7-8).

The Best Story of All: The Gospel

I enjoy reading a book or watching a movie in which a good story unfolds. I especially enjoy it when I know how the story ends, yet still I am compelled to read or watch to the end to see how it unfolds. The old American television series Columbo, starring the late Peter Falk, is a great example.

Grace From First to Last

Grace is the first word in the name of our denomination. We chose it, but not because it sounds “religious.” Each word in our name identifies our experience as a fellowship, and grace is an integral part of our identity — especially our identity in Christ.

As a denomination, we have always understood grace to be God’s unconditional and unmerited pardon. But we tended to think of it as a component of salvation that needed to be “stirred into the mix” because of our inability to keep the law. We now see God’s grace as much more than that.
