• Today is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. He was born February 12, 1809 in a one-room log cabin on Sinking Spring Farm near Hodgenville, Kentucky. He was elected the 16th President of the United States on November 6, 1860. Although Lincoln’s faith was very private, he did quote often from the Bible. Two of his four sons died before he was assassinated. It is said that the loss of his son, Edward in 1850 drove him to express more of a need to depend on God.


  • “I’m all for change as long as it doesn’t affect me.” I can’t remember who said that, but it is one of my favorite quotes. It accurately describes our aversion to changes that come in life. We live in a time of perpetual change that affects every area of our lives. This is true even when it comes to the church, but it’s nothing new. The church has a history of adapting.
