He Chose Me!

If you are a regular visitor, then you’ll notice a certain trend. For the past couple of weeks, I have posted articles from the bulletin for my church, Shore Vineyard. Because of space limitation, the article has to be short. As Taffy is a capable writer, I am not surprised by the number of articles that’s written by her.

Here is a new article written by Taffy. Enjoy! Continue reading “He Chose Me!”

Operation Shoebox

Have you heard of something called Operation Christmas Child? It’s a wonderful program sponsored by Samaritan Purse. It’s an opportunity to send a shoebox full of gifts to a child living in poverty.

The other day, I noticed an article in my church’s bulletin. I thought it worth posting to Inspiration Point. I will let Taffy do the talking in the actual article.

As for me, I would love to encourage you to get involved in programs like these. In my local area, there is something called “Kevin’s Kids” and it does a similar thing; except no shoeboxes are involved.  You can visit the site and find out more.

How does Shore Vineyard fit in? I trust the following article will illustrate what one church can do. Perhaps, you will choose to get involved in Operation Shoebox at our church or one that is in your area. Continue reading “Operation Shoebox”

I am talking about the tendency of some people, to avoid an uncomfortable situation or make an assumption based on appearance. In some ways, I can sympathize with the two groups; as I’ve had my own encounters in these areas.

My goal is not to point fingers and humiliate people in a public arena. Such tactics may garner high site traffics; however, they do not yield any lasting fruits worth mentioning. My goal is to offer some helpful solutions for dealing with such situation.

This article should be of value to people, who are disabled and people, who do not have a disability. I will encourage you to take the time and read it. Shall we start with an illustration?
