    There is a passage of Scripture that is a bit puzzling.  It is one that I have been thinking about a lot lately.

    Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Chri...

    Last month, we began discussing “the oldest division”, the separation of the Gentile and Jewish parts of the Church or Jesus Christ from one another. We learned about a movement towards a new council in Jerusalem to confirm what was established at the first one in Acts...

    As we begin this new year, I would like to come back to an important topic that I often write about.  Anyone who has been reading this column for any length of time will be aware of my call for the unity of the Church.  When I first received God’s call to prepare for t...

    The Hill of Refuge Family in Taebaek, Korea, received its newest members on Friday, May 10th.  Koinonia Nam and his wife Ruth Kim, who had been baptized as Presbyterians many years before, were received into membership of the Hill of Refuge Family in the Syro-Chaldean...

    In these columns, over the past several weeks, we have been lo...

    We ended last week’s post with the question, “Why blood?”  This referred specifically to the blood of circumcision, which we saw as the sign of the covenant between God and Abraham in Genesis 17.  We shall see, as we continue looking at the thread of God’s covenants wi...

    In our previous post, we started looking at God’s promises, His covenants with us, His creatures, His people.  We also saw from Isaiah 62:7 and the story of the Flood in Genesis that God wants us to remind Him of his promises to us.  Whenever I think of this, I marvel...
