A group of conservative Anglican leaders are reportedly meeting in London to discuss forming a "parallel" church that they feel would be more true to Anglican principles on positions like women bishops and gay marriage.
Some believers have known the Lord for years, yet they think it is all about everyone catering to them. But my question is this: When are they going to grow up and start serving other people?

Typically the Sunday after Easter is when worship attendance takes a dip. But not for one struggling inner-city Catholic church located in Missouri. Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, a St. Louis congregation founded in 1849, was the subject of a grassroots effort known as a "mass mob" on Sunday.
Rev. Emerson Boyce, the general secretary of the Evangelical Association of the Caribbean, discussed living conditions in the region and how he's working to prepare Christians in the island nations for future persecution that believers are witnessing throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
The American Bible Society's recently released State of the Bible survey found that a strong majority of Americans think the Bible is available in all of the world's languages, despite the fact that 57 percent of world languages are still in need of completed Bible translations.
Many people consider Moses a biblical "pillar" of Old Testament days—a man without equal in godliness.

The world does not offer much hope for those in despair, but God does. Long before he was king, David stepped out of God's will. In order to get beyond Saul's reach, he sought refuge from the Philistines, and when he returned to the ashes of his city, Ziklag, he was in utter despair. However, David "strengthened himself in the Lord" (1 Samuel 30:6). Though Scripture is not specific about his moment of surrender, I believe he underwent a five-step spiritual process.
