Finding God in Moments of Great Love and Great Sorrow
Last edited 11th February 2016

Yet the deep struggle of all religion is to enter into the joy of God'. So I'll ask again, when were you most in Love?

There’s nothing quite like the love between father and son. Bill and his son, Chris, who has severe autism, sat down to share their story. In the video below, from Upworthy, Bill discusses his son’s multiple diagnoses, his family’s commitment to getting Chris the therapy and schooling he needed, and most importantly, his unconditional love he has for his son. The love between the two is evident in the video below, especially at the 2:08 minute mark when they share a sweet moment.

Who Were Timothy And Titus?
Last edited 26th January 2016

Timothy was a teenager when he met Paul. His family lived in Lystra so he was a Galatian. His father was a Greek man; we know nothing of his faith. But, Timothy’s mom and grandmother were faithful Jewish women who taught the Old Testament scriptures to this boy they loved so much (Acts 16:1; 2 Timothy 1:5). As the women heard Paul preach, they believed in Jesus, and so did Timothy.

Being the Catholic Girl at the Party
Last edited 21st January 2016

I went to a party last night. I don’t really go to parties, at least not of this kind. My kind of party involves ginger beer and snuggling under blankets to watch a movie. This party involved drinking games, very intoxicated people, startlingly immodest dresses and smoking pot.

First day: The Former Child Soldier Practicing Law in Sydney's West
Last edited 21st January 2016

Instead of shooting hoops and riding bikes, Deng Adut was learning how to shoot an AK-47 assault rifle when he was just six years old. He was snatched from his mother in Sudan and forced to take on a new life as a child soldier in his country’s civil war. He says those harrowing days have stayed with him. "I remember everything. I remember watching almost my life just leaving me somehow," he says. Before he was eight, Mr Adut was indoctrinated and didn’t know there could be a life outside the army.
