Arjun Considers Dating Again

Photo by sumit kapoor on Pexels.com It was early Monday morning. Only the two of us were there. Now was my opportunity to ask her to have lunch with me. I stood there watching her, nervous, scared. Since my breakup with Darshika, I haven't looked at another woman or thought about dating again. That was …

A Fitting Farewell

Father Kiesler stood there watching as the church sanctuary quickly filled up. It seemed like the entire community was there to pay their respects to Father Schmidt who had suffered a heart attack a few days ago and died.

"Sir, you have a visitor." "Who is it?" "It's Miss Frances Dormer, the late Mrs. Müller's sister." Helena's …

Do You Know Him?

It was a nice, summer day.  After lunch, my father and I went to matinee show at the theatre which was within walking distance from the apartment I shared with my mother and sisters.

Danny

I found out last week that my mother who suffers from Parkinson's has Shingles.  From what I have seen of Shingles it looks very painful.  I wanted to find out more about it so I decided to surf the Internet and get as much information as I could. What is Shingles? Shingles, also known as …

Pray for the Persecuted

Answer:   In the same way pizza is very common in the United States, persecution is very common in other parts of the world. Imagine that you live in a country where being a Christian is dangerous.  Imagine your neighbors, friends or family members turning against you because you have accepted Jesus as your Lord.  This happened to a college …

Women of Faith Persecuted

I received this persecution and prayer alert from The Voice of Martyrs Canada.  Imagine your teenage daughter is gang-raped, beaten and her life is threatened because you left Islam?  This is the reality for women who have converted to Christianity.  Their families threaten them, their husbands leave them and they could lose custody of their children.  They …
