The Rev. Fred Coulter states: “Church at home! Why, how can you have church at home? Why I go to the church on the corner or across town to the cathedral over there or I go down to my synagogue or my Buddhist temple. What is church at home?” Church at home – is what Jesus and His early followers practice, they met in each other’s homes. Church at home is where a group of believers gather in each other’s homes for regular fellowship, support and worship. Jesus and His disciples practiced it and the early Christians continued – out of necessity – because they were a small enough number in most ..read more

Why the ‘original order’ of the Bible matters
Grandparent Today

Why was the inspired canonical order intentionally ignored? Was it political/religious expediency? Was there a real fear of offending the “doctrinal sensitivities” of the Church of England? Now, 400 years later, a new Bible is making headlines— The Holy Bible In Its Original ..read more

by Sharon Prescott I grew up in the small town of Utica, New York, where most of my friends had frequent contact with their grandparents. I saw my grandparents less, since they lived in Brooklyn. Most contacts with them were very brief telephone conversations. Cell phones were nonexistent and long-distance calls were charged by the minute, so one spoke quickly and always stuck to important matters such as “How is business and is everyone healthy?”. My vivid memories were that of arriving at my grandparents’ home after a five-hour car ride, only to be told by my parents that my sister and I we ..read more
