Ecclesias are our cities of refuge in this life. In a world filled with chaos and confusion, our ecclesia is the place where we find like-minded brothers and sisters, with similar priorities.
Our challenge is to adhere to the principles of the Truth, yet have mercy in how we apply those principles.

As the world now completes more than a half-year under the COVID-19 pandemic, there is news that several vaccines may be available to the public in the coming months.

The same God who created every living thing on this earth also provides mankind with the intelligence and the resources to make vaccines.

From the bottom of my heart I thank the brothers and sisters who sat with my father and permitted him to have a heart-to-heart chat. While there is only one who can change lives, and that is our Lord, our role is to support one another, to love, and to listen.

We have all watched the scenes in urban centers of North America being filled with protestors of every race. These marchers embody the idea that discrimination must stop immediately. This is not a new battleground but has been part of the American social landscape since its earliest days.

I’d like to begin by thanking Bro. Peter Hemingray for his thoughtful leadership as Editor of The Tidings for this past decade. Peter rightfully positioned the magazine as a mechanism for edification in our community.

Employers would soon be able to look for talent, not only in their own urban area but from a mountaintop far away....

I had big shoes to fill when I somewhat reluctantly agreed to become the new Editor of The Tidings, beginning in May 2010. Bro. George Booker and the late Brethren Don Styles and Bob Lloyd had, between them, been editors since 1957.

Back in 2012, Bill Gates declared the book The Better Angels of Our Nature, by Steven Pinker as the most important book he had ever read. In it, Pinker argues that war and violence are declining and that our world is now more peaceful than ever in recorded history.

Most Christadelphians know about the origin of the name of our denomination: indeed, the name “Christadelphian” has quite a history, as well as great significance. It was coined to provide the small company of believers in USA during the Civil War with a name.
