    CORNERSTONE
    ASSEMBLY FULL GOSPEL

  • The hope for eternal life

    When people ask me what I do at my job at the newspaper, specifically what topics I write about, I tell them the shorthand version: old people, dead people and God.
    Actually, I cover a lot more than that, but those three — old people, dead people and God — are the three areas that seem to fall to me.
    This past week I wrote stories about four people who had died, and only one of them I would consider old.
    Of those four people, I attended three memorial services. As I write this, I have two services to attend in the coming week.

  • Attacking anxiety

    By: Nancy Kennedy
    I suffer from a chronic disease and recently had a flare up, albeit a mild one.
    I’m a hypochondriac, and in my case the disease manifests itself as anxiety. It started shortly after my husband had open-heart surgery six years ago this month. An elephant came and sat on my chest and refused to budge, and then strange, random twinges started twinge-ing and I could feel my heart beating, which is normally a good thing, except when I paid close attention to it, it would beat faster, which scared me, which made it beat even faster.

  • Family and faith

    Every family begins with a marriage.
    Two weeks ago, my family got together in California to celebrate our parents’ marriage with a huge party for their 60th anniversary.
    It was a 50’s party, minus the poodle skirts and black leather jackets.
    My sister transformed her garage into a 50’s-style combination soda shoppe and hot rod garage, complete with a juke box in the corner playing classic oldies music.

  • A fight for shalom

    It was a rare day off in the middle of the work week.
    What to do? What to do?
    My husband had called dibs on the computer and I had already caught up on the antics of the Real Housewives of both New York and New Jersey.
    The only thing left to do was go out and get into a fight.
    Actually, fighting topped my list, trumping reading online pop culture blogs, trumping even shopping for clothes I don’t need.
    Beyond anything else I felt the need to fight — fight for peace, for the shalom of my soul.
