Faith in the Workplace

All In A Day’s Work

By Danny Parkes

I am about to recount to you an incredible story that is absolutely mind-boggling (to me) and demonstrates quite a few things about God’s character and His love for people, as well as His oversight. There are many things in this testimony, and I don’t know how long (in terms of words) that it will…

My Life-Changing Testimony

By Chris Foran

I was raised in a nominal Christian home which means that I attended church on a weekly basis. I was provided with a relatively safe environment – I never went without food or clothing. I was given some religious education in primary school but beyond that there was no other discussion or teaching related to…

The Importance of Fellowship, Part 2

By Danny Parkes

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the…

More Than A Gas Station Convenience Store

By Danny Parkes

You might find this story a little strange, because it has to do with the presence of God at a gas station convenience store. But what makes this story so awesome is indeed just that – that the presence of God can be found in a tangible, incredible, “you can really feel it” way at…

He Cares!

By Danny Parkes

“Should I not be concerned about [the people in] that great city?” (Jonah 4:11b) This one should really encourage you. It certainly did for me … really! Last week (May 31, 2001) I was walking into work through my regular entrance (the south door, where I park my car) when the Lord seemed to be…

The Second Death

By Danny Parkes

I can’t back this up with Scripture, but, who knows? Hell just might be in the center of the earth. After all, Jesus said that hell was a place of unquenchable fire. And we all know that, as is so very evident by the fact that exceedingly hot molten liquid lava rock spews forth from…
