Among the  events wrapped into the phrase “Happy Holidays” is the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah.

Why Advent is So Much More than a Countdown to Christmas

By Justina Miller on December 12, 2016

With the secularization of Christmas comes the secularization of the time before Christmas: Advent. What was once a time of preparation for Christ’s coming has been either forgotten or boiled down to a calendar with a piece of chocolate for each of the 28 days before Christmas. However, there is so much more to this beautiful time of the year.

5 Reasons to Sing When You Pray

By Justina Miller on November 25, 2016

The latest addition to the platform is the modern day musical, “Divine Will.”  The film actually wasn't even intended to include music, but the talented cast had voices too angelic to ignore. While music in a modern Christian film is still a growing genre, filmmakers such as Sight and Sound theatre and “Divine Will” creators, Ken and Christine Jones, remind us of the power of music and it’s ability to help us lift our hearts to God.

Should Christians Be Organ Donors?

By Justina Miller on August 30, 2016

In the Christian movie, “God’s Compass,” Suzanne Waters’ husband receives a new heart and a few more years with his family because of another man’s death. As with most organ donations, the story in “God’s Compass” is simultaneously hopeful and devastating. It means the end of one man’s life, yet the continuation of another. In this way, organ donation is a beautiful demonstration of how God works all things for the good (Romans 8:28). However, the question remains: is organ donation okay? Some Christians feel that they should preserve their bodies. Others have trouble with the organ harvesting industry. What’s a Christian to do?

5 Ways to Cope with Loss and Trust in God’s Plan

By Justina Miller on August 19, 2016

"She was no longer wrestling with the grief, but could sit down with it as a lasting companion and make it a sharer in her thoughts."

These words by George Eliot perfectly capture the character of Suzanne Waters in the Christian movie, “God’s Compass.” Though we never actually meet Suzanne Waters’ late husband in the film, we come to know his character through her stories of him, his old artifacts around her house, and even the brief sentences Suzanne says out loud to him, confident that he can hear her from heaven. Suzanne no longer wrestles with her grief, but it still lingers like a “lasting companion.” However, even in her loss, she finds joy and purpose in channeling her love toward those that God has put in her life.

Though grief cannot be completely erased until we are in heaven, we can, like Suzanne Waters, find solace in God’s plan for us and for our loved ones. If you have recently  experienced a great loss in your life, here are 5 ways that may help you to cope.

Building a Christian Marriage... Before You Meet Your Spouse

By Justina Miller on August 11, 2016

When praying for “the one,” we often have a preconceived idea of romance in our heads. He should be considerate and a great listener. She should be a Christian who likes to volunteer. The litany of future spouse qualities grows until we realize, “I don’t possess even half of the qualities I am expecting in a partner.”

Weak People Revenge, Strong People Forgive

By Justina Miller on July 19, 2016

Have you ever stopped to wonder if you hold grudges? Your immediate answer may be, “No. I’m a Christian.” But when we look harder at social circles from church, school, or family, there are always those individuals that have hurt us or just plain get on our nerves. We don’t necessarily wish evil upon these people, but we’ll avoid them in the parking lot or drop their names in gossipy conversations. However, gossip and avoidance are tiny acts of revenge, and rather than building community, they build hardness in our hearts.
