    Syrian Refugee Crisis Meets Greek Debt Crisis From Christian Aid Mission (www.christianaid.org) -- For Immediate Release Contact: Amie Cotton APR, +1 (434) 327-1240, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. GREECE (ANS – July 28, 2015) -- Fallout from Greece's international debt crisis is expected to further squeeze war-ravaged arrivals from Syria, but the refugees and an indigenous group serving them are rising to the challenge. Banks reopened in Greece on Monday (July 20), after three weeks of shut-down to avert a crash while the government scrambled to obtain a bailout from international creditors. The first days of the shut-down, however, left the ministry to Syrian refugees, Bridges, with a cash shortage. Bridges Directors Ilias and Voula Antouan considered skipping distribution of one Wednesday of groceries due to the crisis, Voula Antouan said. They explained the situation to their…

I sang in the synagogue and became a director of the choir but I just couldn’t contact God.” “I would talk to the Lord but I didn’t hear from him,” he added. In grad school at Indiana University he worked…

Releasing October 27, 2015, from Nelson Books, John MacArthur's latest book, “Parables: The Mysteries of God's Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told”, is sure to be the quintessential teaching on the Parables since ... well, the Parables! According to a news release from the Ambassador Advertising Agency in Irvine, California, “Despite the popularity of the parables, both their meaning and the reasons Jesus used them are frequently misunderstood and misrepresented, even by Bible scholars.” Today's…
