Hillsong: Let Hope Rise

“Who am I, to lead these people? I’m just a country girl.” Taya Smith is all blonde curls and dimpled smiles and soft laughs. When she speaks, in her sweet Australian accent, it’s with a simple awe that she’s in the heart of something so big. She may be just a country girl, but she’s […]

Book Review: If You Feel Too Much

The Plight of Displaced Christians

“I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian. I have attended church since I was a small boy.

Louis Zamperini: The Unbroken Man

The bedtime stories Luke Zamperini’s father told him were different than what most kids hear.

Made for Much, Much More

Two haunting lines from Switchfoot’s 2011 title track “Vice Verses” have been replaying in my head. “Where is God in the earthquake? Where is God in the genocide?” Where is God in times of tragedy? Where is God in the cancer? Amy and Tom Hauser have lived that last question. The Lump. It was May […]
