Christian Group Friend Ships Gives Love, Aid to Desperate Syrians

friend-ships

I learned that Don Tipton founded Friend Ships. Previously his lifestyle included hanging out with famous stars in Beverly Hills and he lived next door to former President Ronald Reagan. He radically changed direction when his Christian faith became the bedrock of his life. In 1985, the charity acquired a ship, outfitted it and now for decades a small fleet of Friend Ships has served the poor in nations worldwide.

Love All Neighbors: It's the Way to End Homelessness

homeless

National headlines about Orange County's homeless situation has caused many within our community to lose hope for a real solution and give up. But if our decorated veterans – our most honored citizens – and people with disabilities – our most vulnerable – are left to fend for themselves without a home and hope, what does that say about us?

Is It Nazi-Like to Be a Nationalist?

Should "nationalism" be encouraged? Is it simply a matter of putting your own country's interests first and of saying "no" to an unhealthy globalism?

capitol

With every election cycle, churches, their leaders, and congregants, face the same questions: Where do we fit into this debate? What positions should we take on the issues before us? What is our responsibility to our society? What are the limits of our engagement?

Pastors, Do You Exercise?

In our vocation, there seems to be a major disconnect among us regarding the importance of our physical condition. Have you ever considered that you are unable to go where your body and health cannot take you? It is not my intention to create guilt, but motivation.

Scriptural Prayers for All Situations

Many years ago, when my wife Jeana was diagnosed with cancer, it was a wake-up call for us. At that time we had two young boys, a large and growing church, and a great life. But when cancer struck my 35-year-old wife, our lives turned upside down. This crisis did not drive us away from God but to God.

Why Do So Many Hollywood Elites Despise President Trump?

donald-trump

It's often said that you can judge a man by his friends, but you can judge him even more by his enemies. And there's a lot of truth to this. When you see a certain group of people united in their hatred against someone, it prompts you to ask: Why do they perceive this person to be such a threat? Why do they hate him (or her) so passionately?

Ask Chuck: Repurposing vs. Retiring

chuck-bentley

I have friends who retired a few years ago. Several are thriving while others seem to wish they were back at the careers they left behind. I thought retirement was supposed to be the best years of our life. I am trying to determine: a) should I retire and b) when? Any thoughts?
