Looking for a Church?

Many people want to know what to look for in a church. Often, well-intentioned pastors or Christian leaders have offered their own list of requirements, or those seeking a church may have devised their own criteria in their minds. Yet such lists or criteria are often filled with somewhat trivial or “surface” litmus tests that in no way speak to the root of what a church truly is or should be. Unfortunately, many people believe (or are led to believe) that the perfect church exists. They simply need to find it, and they will find themselves happy for the rest of their lives.

Sometimes our trials may seem too severe, yet all along God knows exactly what we need for our good and His glory.

The Changing Views of Billy Graham

In a series of interviews with Newsweek magazine's managing editor Jon Meacham back in 2006, Billy Graham reflected on the final years of his life and the changes in his thoughts and actions through the years of his life and ministry. Following several months of interviews with the world-renowned evangelist, Meacham published his cover story on Graham in the August 7, 2006, issue of Newsweek.
