The purpose of COP is to foster ambition among the earth’s countries to act upon the climate crisis. Currently, the less powerful, less developed nations that did very little to contribute to the problem are those who are suffering the effects of climate change most severely.
Online education is a relatively recent result of the rapid increase in the availability of communication and the way that we learn. It has been a powerful and challenging phenomenon.
I found out this week that Jean Vanier was guilty of sexual assault over the span of several decades. If the soft-spoken Frenchman who dedicated his life to the disabled is disgraced, to whom can I aspire?
Arthur C. Brooks doesn’t just stick a toe into the current divisive political climate, he dives in headfirst with his book, Love Your Enemies.
For a tradition that preaches of a Redemption that follows the Fall, I have encountered an uncanny amount of pro-death penalty sentiments in Reformed circles. I found myself waffling back and forth, wading through the pros and cons of death penalties vs. life sentences for many years.
In visual artist, metaphors are directly correlated to the design process and linked to form-making. It is through the potential of the metaphor that an image can transcend the vividness and veracity of form.
“The Kingdom of God Has No Borders” provides us with a wide-ranging, closely researched account of just how American evangelicals have been involved overseas—and to a lesser extent, of how that involvement played out back home.
So, if even the integration of Christian elements into adaptive coping doesn’t work for a dysphoric individual, what else does Christianity potentially bring to the discussion of coping?

This week iAt presents a 4-part series entitled, “Gender Dysphoria & the Question of Distinctly Christian Resources,” written by Mark A. Yarhouse, Psy.D. & Julia Sadusky, M.A.

American Christians who care about the fate of Christianity in Iraq now have a very small window of time in which to make their voice heard on this issue. If no protection is forthcoming, the last Iraqi Christians will leave, and Iraq will join much of North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula as a Christian-free zone – until such time as God decides, in his mercy, to light the lamp of the gospel in that broken country once more.
Love, then, is lavishing yourself upon someone who is unworthy and unattractive.
Aleppo today has faded from the headlines. If the news cycle has moved on, it should not mean that our hearts should too. The humanitarian situation in the city is still extremely precarious, and the number of internally displaced people ever higher, with all the logistical problems this implies. In such a situation, it is easy to feel helpless.
What should college students do to expand their minds in preparation for their vocation? Studying philosophy can help, and studying welding is also good.
The meaning someone is trying to express by using “evangelical” depends as much or more on context that any inherently accepted common definition of the term. The sheer flexibility of the term is both one secret of its lasting utility and at the same time its greatest weakness.

The question is obviously complex, and it surely involves our heart as much as our musical skill.
If the earth is the Lord’s and fullness thereof, everything in it belongs to our Creator and Redeemer. For culture, and particularly the arts, this means we do not need make judgments upon what is and isn’t Christian.
Finding our “common home” in God’s creation.
As Christians, we certainly have an opportunity to play a role in this presidential-election process, as well is in politics overall. But, are Christians called to be involved in the political realm, and if so, what should that look like?
On all levels I have been able to witness some great performances and have seen the enjoyment that players receive by working with others on a team. The outcomes of these games require the participants to understand the importance of reacting appropriately to both winning and losing.
I have a responsibility to live out my faith as a Christian in all aspects of my life, including my work. I try to do this in different ways depending on the situation.
The operational function of an organization, whether product or service related, is really the heart of the firm. This is where the real action is.
Between work commitments, church and civic commitments, and responsibilities at home, it can be very difficult to find rest and balance.
