The new 8.0

We’re working hard to bring a more useful, usable, and unique website together. Feel free to post a comment with pros and cons of things you see and would like to see. We’re always looking for folks to send content to make this a virtual hub of all things going on in the real world of [nlcf]. We could say it’s in beta but it would never leave beta since it’s always a work in progress. Ex: try clicking one of these patterns to change the background of the page to fit your personality, mood, or feng shui.

How to Ruin Your Life Survey

Coming Spring 2007, we are planning a series entitled “How to Ruin Your Life” to shed light on practical topics from a scriptural perspective. We think all these items have a great capacity to impact our daily living and ruin our lives if we aren’t careful, but we need to narrow down the list. Please take a minute to let us know what you think in the survey below.

Matthew 16-18

Compared to someone like Billy Graham, Jesus’s three years of public ministry might seem like a brief stint. Not so. Jesus is on the mission non-stop. As I read the gospels freshly, I’m impressed with how quickly He goes from one adventure to the next transforming the lives of thousands of people on a 24/7 basis. I wonder just what percentage of His amazing works were recorded. Like John writes, “if everything that Jesus did was written down, even the whole world would not have room for all the books that would be written.” This may not be an exaggeration.

what’s a blurb?

A blurb is a blurb. This would be the place for random info, a stream of consciousness flow, a deep thought, a link to an item of interest, pertinent world news, no more than four sentences. Anyone can register and submit a blurb for consideration.
