The Value of Friendship

by Brenda Diggs

Not long ago, I saw the letters “BFF” written together in a text message to someone.  Since I don’t text, I had no clue what it meant.  After admitting my ignorance, I learned that “BFF” stands for Best Friends Forever.

With the advent of social media, specifically Facebook, “friend” has become a generic term that is used very loosely in our culture. Almost everyone is plugged in, but are we really connected?

A 2006 Washington Post article entitled, “Social Isolation Growing in U.S.”, cites the findings of a study that states “Americans are far more isolated today than they were twenty years ago; and that very few people feel they have anyone they can confide in.” Continue reading

A Love Deferred? (Prologue)

by Harriett V. Bennett

Straight from the author, your special peak into the novel A Love Derferred? This is the prologue:

Prayer is bringing the ‘I AM’ into everyday situations; it is learning God, rather than learning about God.

Prayer is a privilege granted by a merciful God who longs to be intimately involved with His Creation.

by Lisa Banks Williams

So are you really ready?  Maybe you’re not, but God is ready for you.  Have you been struggling with an issue all by yourself?  Are you feeling that no one knows what you are going through or feeling?  Are you tried to trying to gain a victory over an area of your life and you have no idea how you are going to make it?

You see, Jesus changed my life when He showed me another way to live and another way to love.   Continue reading
