Ray Singer: It’s Because of the Christ Child

By |2020-12-24T16:04:42-06:00December 24th, 2020|Blog|0 Comments

Look! The virgin will conceive a child. She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means 'God with us'." Matthew 1:23 Jesus most definitely is "the reason for the season!"

Zoom, Zoom!

Not many of us regularly used video telecommunications for our work a few months ago. That changed in a big way when the COVID-19 pandemic hit late last winter.

We're either like Mary or Martha, the sisters who opened their home to Jesus in Luke 10. Martha hurried around making preparations for the meal that [...]

By |2020-10-15T17:03:53-05:00October 15th, 2020|Uncategorized|0 Comments

"If you do not forgive others their sins, your Father (God) will not forgive your sins." Jesus, Matthew 6:15 Don't Pretend to Forgive Mike Stroud Genuine forgiveness can be a hurdle.

As Timothy Network prepares to celebrate a 15th birthday this summer, what follows has a direct tie-in with this project's formation in 2005.
