Highlights

  • The Promise of Restoration: Isaiah 11:1-9
    God is a gracious & merciful God. Even though the nation of Israel had rejected God & turned to idols, God was not finished with His people yet. He was still carrying out His plan of redemption. God was still going to send the Messiah to save them!

  • Book Corner: Heaven by Randy Alcorn
    As the years pass and we watch more and more of our family, friends and mentors pass away, it is only natural to ask questions about heaven. However, our understanding of heaven is often limited to a few half-forgotten Sunday school lessons and the insubstantial images provided by popular movies and T.V. Fortunately, in Heaven Randy Alcorn provides us with a thoroughly researched and biblically definitive description of heaven. As Alcorn addresses our most serious questions about heaven, including the nature of judgment, and answers a few of our less serious questions as well, including the accessibility of cafe mochas in the sweet by and by. Readers will develop a deeper understanding of our eternal destination and find the courage to strive for heaven while living on earth.
