Holidays – The Season of Giving

December 10, 2014 by Blue Ridge Leader Faith, Lifestyle Comments Off on Holidays – The Season of Giving

By Mark Gunderman

Besides the many commandments in the Torah instructing us to love our fellow man, there is also an explicit commandment to open your hand to the poor and to give or loan them whatever they need to keep from spiraling into poverty. In Judaism, giving to the poor is not considered a generous act; it is called “Tzedkah,” the Hebrew word for charity, and is seen as simply an act of fairness. The word “tzedakah” is derived from the Hebrew root “Tzadei-Dalet-Qof,” meaning righteousness or justice. Four thousand years ago ancient Hebrews paid an obligatory tax to provide for the needy. Today many renowned charities of the world have their roots in the efforts of charitable-hearted Jews. … Continue Reading

Francis Makemie Society

January 15, 2014 by Blue Ridge Leader Faith, Lifestyle Comments Off on Francis Makemie Society

By Mark Gunderman

Protestant dissenters in Virginia first obtained religious liberty due to Francis Makemie’s petition to Colonial Governor Francis Nicholson.

In 2013, Makemie Park near Temperanceville, Virginia has been the site of archeological digs on the former site of Reverend Francis Makemie’s 17th century residence. Following the same archeological procedures used at Jamestown and Saint Mary’s, the Francis Makemie Society marked out a 90’ by 40’ area with string and large nails over what many believe is the foundation of Makemie’s house. Today the entire area is under scrutiny to learn more about both the foundations and a trove of early colonial artifacts. … Continue Reading

The Christ of Christmas

December 26, 2012 by Contributor Faith, Lifestyle Comments Off on The Christ of Christmas

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” – Isaiah 9:6

Christian goal is to turn the eyes of all men upon the true Creator and Christ of Christmas.

God foretold his plan for humanity through the Hebrew prophets hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus Christ. Isaiah wrote, “The Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by his wounds we are healed.” … Continue Reading
