Kiriban Award

The white dove is commonly known today as a symbol of peace and purity, but it was also used several times in the Bible. It was the bird Noah sent out of the ark that returned with an olive branch (Genesis 8:6-12), Jonah's name in the original Hebrew means 'dove', Jews who could not afford to provide a lamb for sacrifice could instead use two doves (Leviticus 1:14; 14:30; Luke 2:24), and the Holy Spirit Himself descended from heaven during Jesus' baptism in the form of a dove (Matthew 3:16).
Fun fact: doves don't have gallbladders.

Check out an amazing book I've literally read 3 times now - "The Great Hope", found online for free here:

I must admit, I'm very discouraged about the 2 main candidates for the soon upcoming United States Presidential election. Hillary and Trump...neither are a fitting choice for my conservative views. Most of my watchers are from the United States, but those of you who aren't can still receive some value from what I'm about to share.

Honestly, I feel so sad about the condition of the US and the direction it is headed. I sooooo wish that things would get better...that morality would improve, rights would be restored, oppression removed, corrupt politicians would vanish, etc. This morning as I read the news that Hillary won the California primary, I felt like crying. But I don't know if I would have been much happier if Trump had won. Either way, I expect my life here to get worse and more of my rights taken away. I fear for the future of my children (should God bless me with children one day). "Despair" is a fitting word for how I felt. So I prayed. And I felt a little light of encouragement inside as I sensed God telling me that I was focusing on the wrong thing.

God does not have me here in this world so that I can help turn it into a perfect place like the garden of Eden. God has me here to tell people about Salvation through Jesus. Instead of focusing on how things are getting worse, I should be busy doing my job which is showing people how they can have a relationship with God. THAT is my purpose. Things around the world are going to get worse, the Bible predicted that, and I don't want to be frozen in fear and despair. It's time to get productive.  Don't focus on the stormy waves around you, keep your eyes on Jesus.

I hope this is encouraging to some of you who might have experienced similar disappointment.

Lets be like Jesus. Through God's power lets focus on changing hearts more than laws. Lets do His business until He comes back (Luke 19:13)

And to lighten the mood a little, time for some comic relief.  This image is in honor of those who loved the original Ghost Busters:

A Letter From the People of the Cross




Vision: We want to tell the world of the great and mighty things of the Lord through media



As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but their enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

We worked with several Arab Christians and Middle East Refugees to get their feedback. Also had it translated by an Arab Christian from Egypt.

I'm passionate about art. More than that, I'm passionate about a relationship with Jesus Christ. Here is a list of resources and links that have helped me in my Christian life. Originally I created this as a quick reference list for my own use, then I thought that others might find it useful too. :aww:
