Soursop—the Cancer-Fighting Super Fruit

I have to admit that when I heard the word “soursop” several months ago, I had no idea what it was. It wasn’t until I heard another of its common names, “graviola,” that I realized I was indeed familiar with this funny-sounding plant. For years I have seen this dark-green, prickly fruit in the supermarket; [...]

Colorectal Cancer: Prevention Is OPTIMUM

Each year many of us go to the doctor for a yearly physical examination. Depending on the physician’s protocol and the age of the patient, the examination can take up to two hours or no more than thirty minutes to complete. Usually a basic physical exam consists of checking vital signs, a few bodily palpations, [...]

What’s the Key to Family Reconciliation?

There are always going to be problems, challenges, and conflicts in families. After all, look at what happened, in the very first “first family,” between the brothers Cain and Abel (Gen. 4:8). This sibling rivalry did not end well but, thankfully, it is neither the only nor the best example of how to handle family [...]

Why Your Body May Be More Important than your Spirit

God is spirit and He created us for His pleasure, to commune with Him and to enjoy Him forever on Earth. This communion is possible because we human beings are spirit too. But What if I told you we can’t enjoy God without our body? What if I told you we’re always supposed to have [...]

Why We Need Reconciliation

Reconciliation—to be reconciled, to a person, a group, even a family.  We often think in terms of forgiveness; however, forgiveness and reconciliation too often do not go together in our lives.  HaShem (G-d) offers both forgiveness and reconciliation.  He calls upon us to “forgive those who trespass (or sin) against us.”  So what is reconciliation?  [...]

Why Reconcile When Revenge Is Easier and Sweeter?

Unbroken is the brutal yet tender life-changing story of Lou Zamperini.  As the credits rolled at the end of the movie, the still and stunned silence was broken by claps of tribute and respect. The applause was not for the acting or the story; it was for the man and his transformational choices.  A man is [...]

Is There Hope for Our Marriage?

It happens to every marriage.  Sometimes it’s dramatic and heartbreaking, like an infidelity or gambling away the family savings.  Sometimes it’s a fight over the in-laws’ visit, or money for a vacation, or the best way to put the baby to sleep at night.  Every couple faces it: offenses.  Words are said, actions are taken, [...]

How to Restore a Fallen Pastor

It’s Sunday morning, and your worship service has begun in the usual way. Following an opening prayer, an elderly board member, head bowed, walks slowly to the podium. He nervously fidgets with his microphone, sending crackles throughout the silent room. His index finger flips the screen on his tablet notes. He speaks slowly. “Friends, it [...]
