  • Earthly Mansion or Heavenly Home? by Richard Gammill

    In 1956, Ruth Graham built a rustic home high on Black Mountain above Montreat, N.C. Meanwhile, her famous husband, Billy, conducted large evangelistic campaigns in distant parts of the world. Her pièce de résistance was an old diving board she found at the county dump. She placed it as the mantle over the cavernous stone living room fireplace with these words carved into the wood: “Eine Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott” (“A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”). Ruth designed and constructed for her husband an…

  • The Gift of Friendship by Richard Gammill

    My first season of snow and ice in Pagosa Springs began with a thud. One morning, I walked from our house to my little writer’s cabin, when suddenly my feet flew out from under me and I landed hard on the frozen ground. Three broken ribs. A few weeks later, while I was walking our dog, I slipped and fell again. More pain, but no new damage. A year later, I suffered a very bad fall. Seven broken ribs led to nearly two weeks in the hospital followed by months of slow, painful recovery. Last spring…

  • A Humanitarian Crisis You Don't Know About by Richard Gammill

    A country’s military forces should be expected to assure peace and protection for all its citizens. We in America take this for granted and honor those who so serve. We assume our rights have a guarantee of protection, even if we belong to a minority. Unspeakable horror descends upon a country when its military forces persecute rather than protect a despised ethnic and religious minority. Forces established to stabilize a country are devoted instead to evil purposes. Terror and torment rule over…

  • Every Day, I Stand in Awe by Jan Davis

    "Let all the earth fear the LORD" let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him." - Psalm 33:8 Today, I stand in awe of our Lord and Savior. When I pause and reflect upon God's mercy and grace he showers over me, I stand in awe of his goodness and faithfulness. He knew me before i ws conceived in my mother's womb. He showed mercy when I felt unlovable and undeserving of His love. His grace is constant in my life, yesterdya, today and forever. I stand in awe. His love surrounds me in t…
