  • Israel visits awaken his faith

    Indian Land High School driver education teacher Rick Furr spent last summer exploring his faith in Israel.
    “It always feels like I’m going back home,” said Furr, who made his fourth trip there in 2017.
    Furr made his first pilgrimage to Israel in 2005. His sister, Carol Tate, a pastor at Life Giving Christian Center in Monroe, N.C., encouraged him to travel to Israel with their church group. He accepted the invitation without seeing it as much more than a tourist trip. But he said it wasn’t long before it changed his life forever.

    Living Saviour Lutheran Church

    The congregation of Living Saviour Lutheran Church celebrated the beginning of Advent 2017 with the revival of a special American tradition that was born 60 years ago, but has faded somewhat in popularity.

  • St. Nicholas visits IL

    Beverly Lengers
    Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church

    One of the complaints that Christians often voice at this time of year is that Christmas has become too commercialized and secularized. Far too many people observe Christ Mass without any acknowledgment of Christ at all. It’s all about parties and presents and television specials without any reverence for or meditation on the main focus of Christmas, namely, the incarnation of our Lord. Santa Claus gets more attention than Jesus.
