Being Fit as a Christian

“God can’t use you if you’re dead.” I always chuckle a little bit to myself when I remember these words, which were pronounced during a sermon by a former professor.


“Silence” and the Messiness of Faith in Christ


By: Jarod Grice

Unless you were paying close attention, you probably didn’t notice that Martin Scorsese released a new movie just before Christmas. Scorsese’s newest movie, “Silence”, released in very select theatres on December 21st, 2016. In a nutshell, it is about 2 Jesuit missionaries who travel to hostile Japan to rescue their mentor that had presumably renounced Christ in the face of Japanese persecution. It tells the story of how these two missionaries struggle with their faith in the midst of intense persecution and trial.
