Faith Matters | Biff’s all-star snubbing and the gospel message

In addition to July 4th bringing freedom, friends, family and fireworks together, it also signals a countdown for baseball fans. The Major League Baseball All-Star game is right around the corner. Unfortunately so is your neighbors’ fireworks display. But by they should eventually run out by the time the game starts in the second week of July. Then we can all enjoy the game without the deliberate decibels which have no place in suburbia.

Faith Matters | What do you mean no vacation bible school? Who is going to babysit my kids – for free?

I’ll never forget the exact moment when I knew that our church would never do a regular Vacation Bible School (VBS) again. I was sitting in a restaurant with a bunch of my mom friends having breakfast a few days before school let out a few summers ago. Several of them started talking about all of the VBS schedules for all of the different churches in Bradenton. And then one of them said it out loud. A deep, dark truth that everyone knows, but no one wants to admit. She said, “It is the best free babysitting in town!”
