II Kings 17:1-41. What are the similarities of America today with Samaria long ago, a mixed people with muddled beliefs, and how can I witness for Christ into that muddle?

Acts 25:1-12. Amidst rising persecution of Christians, where is the balance between claiming our rights and standing with mild, firm patience as Paul did?

Mark 15:22-32. How can I show forth today the risen Jesus, conclusive refutation to scorners of the crucified Jesus?
