Actress Cote de Pablo will star in the upcoming "Dovekeepers" miniseries produced by Roma Downey and husband Mark Burnett; it marks her first return to TV since leaving the hit CBS series "NCIS."
"I have been living, spending time with my family, which was very important to me," de Pablo said at a panel with the Television Critics Association. "How can I tell stories if I'm not infused by life?"
The actress who rose to fame playing the beloved character Ziva David, a Massad agent sent to work in the U.S. with the crew of NCIS. After eight seasons, she suddenly decided to leave the series and offered no explanation to fans wanting her to stay put. But de Pablo has not ruled out a possible return to the series, given that her character was not killed off, which she was "very telling." more >>
Note: This article is part 2 in a series on the Holy Spirit. The need to address revival and the vital role of the Holy Spirit is as relevant today as it has been throughout church history. It's my hope that readers consider the entire series before drawing conclusions. Part 1 can be viewed here: Do You Mock the Work of the Spirit? .
As stated last week, I, like many Christians, tend to be "safely" conservative when considering the power of the Holy Spirit; however, Scripture clearly supports the miraculous work of the Spirit today. I'm open but cautious. We need sound doctrine and the power of the Holy Spirit. But it is possible to be "Bible taught," but not "Spirit led"—straight as a gun barrel theologically, but just as empty. The letter kills, but the Spirit gives life (cf. 2 Corinthians 3:6).
Don't get me wrong, theological and expositional teachings are essential to Christian living, but how often are theology students encouraged to fast and pray as well as study? How often are they taught brokenness and repentance in addition to translating the Greek language? We can sometimes be more concerned about a Master's Degree than a degree from the Master. more >>
After all hope was lost for a South African boy who was left in a vegetative state for over 12 years, starting from the time he was 12, Martin Pistorius miraculously broke out of his paralyzing trance to eventually become a functioning business owner, husband and author.
In 1988, Pistorius' parents noticed that there was something seriously wrong with their 12-year-old son. They noticed that he wouldn't wake up unless he was awoken and spent most of the time laying down in the fetal position.
The Pistorius family took their son to the hospital. Although the doctors were not quite sure what was wrong with him, they diagnosed him with Cryptococci Meningitis, as The Blaze reports. His condition continued to worsen, leaving Martin unable to move or speak. more >>
This is a reminder that we should all dance at all times throughout the day, even if it's just a pre-church countdown. This guy will have you laughing for hours with his church-appropriate dance means.
You will be laughing at the names of the dances and just the way this man dances in general. Watch him work up a sweat while reading some scripture and using Bible-themed dance moves. It wouldn't be surprising if you got up and decided to bust-a-move with him.

Children to many cultures, are the picture of innocence. They are fragile, gentle, and there is great care taken into raising them and influencing them the right way. This includes the way they act around others. Even if the child or adult is disabled, we shouldn't lower our standards in the way we treat them.
God loves all of his children equally. It is important for us as humans to love one another equally as Jesus did. Even if someone is disabled, we should not act differently around them. This video shows the innocent views of the disabled person from a child, compared to that of an adult. We should all love each other equally and treat those who are disabled with the same respect as someone else.
