Cross Section Episode 1

This is the first in what I hope will become a bimonthly podcast. (Or more frequently if it becomes successful.) Each podcast will be a short devotional usually around 5 minutes or less, in which I will discuss various topics that pertain to Christian life, while relating those topics to the central focus of Christianity, chiefly Christ and his work on the cross. If this podcast is helpful to you please share it as widely as possible. The wonderful instrumental rendition of Before the Throne of God Above used as the intro music was arranged and performed by my lovely wife Richelle.

Remember, Remember the 4th Thursday of November.

Remember, Remember the 4th Thursday of November.
By Daniel Shultz

            As we feast on turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and sweet potatoes; as we sit down to watch the Lion and Cowboys lose and the Packers win; as we spend time with our families watching parades and reminiscing let us actually take time to honor the real meaning and purpose of a national day set aside for Thanksgiving. This Thankfulness should be directed toward God.  As the purpose of giving thanks is not merely a secular appreciation to one’s family but instead is an intrinsically religious action. Nothing in life is separated from the religious. For the Christian we should recognize that everything we do must be impacted and affected by our faith.
