  • Southeast buys Crestwood center

    Southeast Christian Church will become the new landowner of the Crestwood Station Shopping Center, the church has announced. 

    The church, which opened a campus in the shopping center nearly three years ago, has an agreement in place to become the center’s landowner for $3.3 million. The agreement excludes the space currently occupied by All About Kids. 

  • How can I live life with passion?

    In a devotional recorded in A Fifth Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul (© 1998), an encounter at the airport is shared by Michael Hargrave.  He tells of a man who is met by his family after his flight. 

    He hugs and kisses each as if he has been gone a long time, but with great passion he gives his wife the longest kiss Mr. Hargrave had ever witnessed, and then stares longingly into her eyes and then mouths the words, “I love you.”

  • Southeast Christian buys land for Oldham Campus expansion

  • Living passionately has lasting effects

    We know what a will is.  A legal document that establishes how we want all our worldly possessions to be divided amongst the people we care about and the organizations we want to support in our death. 

    Today I want to write about your “Living Will.”  This is what we want to pass on to those around us by the way we live our lives.  Our legacy of beliefs, morals and attitudes that we hope are communicated by the way we live our lives. 

  • We are commanded to be joyful

    A minister was speaking to a Sunday School class about the things money can’t buy.

    “It can’t buy laughter and it can’t buy love” he told them. Driving his point home he said, “What would you do if I offered you $1,000 not to love your mother and father?”

    Stunned silence ensued. Finally a small voice queried, “How much would you give me not to love my big sister?”

    Last week we looked at the importance of laughter and joy in life.  Can we make these a part of a “living will?”

  • Sharing the signs of God in nature

    Paul writes in Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” 

    Some of the examples of this also include Christian symbols found in nature that inspire people.

  • Righteousness-a never failing stream

    Over the last two weeks I have looked at the powerful words from the prophet Amos.  Speaking for God we read, “I hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me…But let justice roll on like a river, and righteousness like a never-failing stream (Amos 5:21 & 24). 

  • Finding Justice in This Life

    The prophet Amos spoke words from God to the people of Israel, known as the Northern Kingdom during the eighth century B.C.  He proclaimed powerful words of judgment on all those who had roles in government, religion and commerce.  If you work in any of these, and you are willing to take a good honest look at yourself, read Amos.  The most often quoted verse in Amos is, “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5:24).

  • Learning to trust the Lord

    God will go to great lengths to teach us to trust Him more. 

    This usually happens in the hardest times in our life, because we live in a fallen world, where sin, death and evil must be dealt with regularly in our lives. Life is hard! 

    It is during those hard times that we often turn to the Lord for strength.  This is a wise thing to do, for God desires to care for us, and draw us closer to Him.
