    The International Churchill Society ^ | Nov 12, 2016 9:17 AM | Laurence Geller CBE, Chairman
    Historic Announcements from the Chairman at the 33rd International Churchill Conference Dear Members and Friends of The International Churchill Society: Writing in his memoirs, Sir Winston Churchill observed of the American people that “their national psychology is such that the bigger the Idea the more wholeheartedly and obstinately do they throw themselves into making it a success.” Nearly fifty years ago, a small group of enthusiasts came together to compare notes on postage stamps bearing Churchill’s likeness. Only a few months before he died, Sir Winston’s son Randolph gave his blessing to this newly formed organization. Thus the International Churchill...

  • "Finding Home": Poems In Search Of A Lost America

    11/20/2015 3:21:10 AM PST · by Biggirl · 8 replies ^ | November 20, 2015 | Mark Tapson
    Considering the Freedom Center’s aggressive political work, poetry may not be something one would expect to find as part of its intellectual arsenal. But as many conservative writers such as Andrew Klavan and myself have noted for years, reclaiming America means reclaiming the culture, and that means engaging in the arts. As Finch writes in his introduction, “[I]f as a people, and a nation, we can return to something lost, recovering something from our culture that has been torn, then it can only happen through art.” The art of Finding Home is Michael Finch’s deeply personal contribution to the culture...

    I know James O'Keefe wasn't involved in the recent sting videos involving Planned parenthood, but the very Tactics of this Exposing the evil on the left are shall we say "inspired" by Project Veritas. I love the fact that another group out there has learned from James O'Keefe's group and are using his previous example as an instruction manual and improving upon them. I just wanted to give some props out there to both James O'Keefe for spearheading and pathfinding this method of investigative citizen journalism and also the Center for Medical Progress for taking those lessons and expanding upon...

    Daimler debuts self-driving semi-truck Its name is “Inspiration,” and Daimler Trucks says it is the first ever self-driving semi-truck licensed to drive on public roads — in this case Nevada’s highways — not only for testing, but business, too. Daimler Trucks North America LLC debuted the self-driving big rig Tuesday night with a drive — and a driver steering — atop the Hoover Dam on the Nevada-Arizona border. Taking a line from astronaut Neil Armstrong, Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard of Daimler Trucks and Buses told the crowd bused to the site from Las Vegas for the news conference that they were...

  • British grandfather celebrates beating three types of cancer in a year with trek to South Pole

    Patrick McIntosh's wife, children and grandchildren think he's gone mad. His business clients think he's joking. And his doctors think he's lucky to be alive. Yet on Monday, despite the concerns of his family and bemusement of his colleagues, the businessman left home to trek to the South Pole – despite having been diagnosed with three unconnected cancers in less than a year. "It is perhaps a bit unusual," said Mr McIntosh, 58. "I've never done anything quite as mad as this. But I just want to get going." For the past few months, Mr McIntosh has been training hard...

    The Christian Diarist ^ | June 8, 2014 | JP
    I’d heard of Nick Vujicic. I’d caught a glimpse of him on Christian television. But nothing prepared me for his recent appearance at my church. A mighty man of faith, Vujicic delivered one of most powerful, spirit-filled messages I’ve ever heard. I think the Australian-born evangelist the most inspirational Christ follower since Helen Keller. Keller’s life story was immortalized in the 1962 motion picture “The Miracle Worker.” Born in 1880, Helen was 19 months old when she contracted “brain fever,” as the Keller family doctor called it. She was struck blind, deaf and mute. Nearly feral as a child, Helen’s...
  • Inspiration of the Bible

    05/14/2014 8:40:09 PM PDT · by boatbums · 79 replies ^ |
    Inspiration establishes that the Bible is a divine product. In other words, Scripture is divinely inspired in that God actively worked through the process and had his hand in the outcome of what Scripture would say. Inspired Scripture is simply written revelation. "Scripture is not only man's word, but also, and equally God's word, spoken through man's lips or written with man's pen" (J.I. Packer, The Origin of the Bible, p. 31). The term comes from Latin and English translations of the Greek word theopneustos in 2 Timothy 3:16. The KJV renders it "inspiration", while the RSV uses "inspired of...
  • Wow: Documentary Follows Mom Who Gave Birth Knowing She Would Lose Her Own Life

    Some movies have powerful plotlines. Others have intriguing characters. The documentary “40 Weeks” has both. Director Christopher Henze follows Elizabeth Joice during her pregnancy, in which she finds out her cancer had returned from years earlier and makes the remarkable decision to put her daughter Lily’s life over her own. Here’s a brief description about her incredible story of self-sacrifice: Just one month after finding out she was pregnant in June 2013, Elizabeth’s doctors found a tumor in her lung. They removed it with surgery, but because she was pregnant they could not give her the full body MRI...
  • Christian Programming Is Being Blocked From Your TV Lineup

    02/13/2014 3:57:34 PM PST · by lowbridge · 40 replies ^ | february 13, 2014 | B. Christopher Agee
    DirecTV recently announced it will drop the Inspiration Network from its lineup, leaving its stable of profane and worldly channels untouched. Incredibly, reports indicate the provider also misrepresented the development by suggesting the network initiated the split. In reality, it appears the decision was wholly that of the provider. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of the decision lies in the fact that DirecTV did not gain anything – or save any money – by dropping the network. Unlike the majority of channels carried by the company, the Inspiration Network does not charge a license fee to providers. Many failing networks cost carriers...

    It was one photo, somewhat grainy, of a teenager in a hospital bed, his cotton gown open at the chest, arms raised and fists clenched in a strongman pose. His expression is pure determination. It was January 2012 when Zachary Lederer’s father took that photo of him. Zach had just come out of surgery to resect a brain tumor and hoped to encourage concerned friends and family. It was posted online and shared. Someone added, in reference to quarterback Tim Tebow’s widely mimicked genuflecting pose, “Tebowing is out, Zaching is in.” Then it went viral. In the weeks and months...

    Walking along Interstate 44, his face weathered by wind and time, Harold turned and held up his thumb, his faith low and his pessimism high as he observed the annoyed looks and scowls. You wouldn’t look at me that way if you knew what I did for you, he thought to himself. Car after car passed Harold. He kept walking ahead but his thoughts were bound to the past. Years of surviving enemy jungles, hot humid nights spent watching and wondering if he would ever make it home alive—had taken their toll—leaving Harold hardened, scarred and bitter. Failed marriages, rejected...

    I recently spent 96 mesmerizing minutes viewing the latest film release of the story of Sir Nicholas Winton at the Detroit Film Theatre within the Detroit Institute of Arts complex. “Nicky’s Family” ( portrays the bold actions of a young British businessman who saved 669 Jewish children from almost certain death in the days before World War II broke out on Sept. 1, 1939. The story of determination is amazing. The story of a humble man is inspiring. I am sure some in the theatre were learning of Nicky’s actions for the first time. The film shares the story of...

    President Shimon Peres held out hopes Wednesday of seeing the Middle East draw inspiration from the European Union by one day turning a region long at war into one at peace. Praising Europe for overcoming 1,000 years of conflict in six short decades as he visited EU headquarters, Peres said, "You have the gift of a united hope even if you have a divided economic situation." "I hope the time will come when the Middle East will become a peaceful united region like you," he added. Peres, on an eight-day tour to Brussels, Paris and Strasbourg, said he believed there...

    Glenn Beck clearly works hard to make sure that each segment of his GBTV show ranks high in measures of quality and content. But you can tell when he classifies a topic as a “must watch” segment. There are two such clips in this post. Consider this a story of a destiny reclaimed. One town, best by squabbles and scandals, rises up to chart a new and very American course. Until November 2010, Vernon Township, New Jersey did not have a Mayor. Instead, the town functioned under the Faulkner Act – a “council-manager” – form of government. Under this system...

Audrey Winkelsas' life has been full of such difficult contrasts. Yet when she emerged from behind the stage in a wheelchair to raucous applause and a standing ovation during graduation ceremonies Friday, she finally had a moment to focus only on the victories.

Galen Peterson figured he’d reached the end of his military career. “One of the biggest things that I struggled with when I was going through [traumatic brain injury] is the impression that my career and life as I knew it was over, that there was no way I could stay on active duty, much less an armor officer,” he said. But with hard work and perseverance, he was able not only to remain on active...

By obediently following his will, she has brought glory upon God because I now stand...

Election officials said Monday that more than 98 percent of ballots in the Jan. 9 vote were for independence. That means South Sudan will become the world's newest country in July.

No pesky ‘talkers, coughers, texters, crying babies and those who feel the darkness of the movie theater is the perfect place to catch up on their tweets. By the end of the movie, however, I wished every one of the above had been there.

The account of the river flowing from the temple in the book Ezekiel gives us an illustration of just how important we are to the plan of the Lord. To paraphrase the account, Ezekiel is shown the Temple, and there is a small stream of water leaving form the temple, and running under the Temple wall out to the east. The person showing...
