YOSEMITE, Calif. (BP)--Yosemite National Park lays claim to some of the best climbing, backpacking and hiking in the world. Many people travel great distances to take advantage of life in the great outdoors, and some even sense spiritual connections to the beauty of the park -- including Southern Baptist summer missionaries.
YOSEMITE, Calif. (BP)--For some time now I have had a hard time believing that giving one's life completely to God will result in total happiness here on earth. However, God continues to show me that one can actually serve him and be completely happy at the same time.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--As Christians, we all have a responsibility -- whether we like it or not -- to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone we encounter.
CLEVELAND, Tenn. (BP)--Picture a 12-year-old boy, all alone in the midst of the greatest war the world has ever seen. A 12-year-old boy, in a frenzy to find anyone he knows. Every second of every minute of every day he hides from the evil ones that have come in search of blood. There is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. All he can do is wait, wait for seven years and hope that he has a second chance. For nearly two years, I lived my life in fear that I would one day become this little boy.
