    Hidden Mysteries: Mother Nature & Her Spiritual Connection to our Realm

    in Paranormal

    When we think of Mother Nature, we imagine a motherly figure decked out in Grecian-Goddess garb strolling through a lush forest and capriciously striking down anyone who might endanger her perfectly created oasis. There are many myths that have cropped up in various ancient civilizations that all have entertained the idea that such a being has existed, and engaged with us mere mortals many ions ago. In our contemporary world, however, she has become synonymous with our climate changes and the endless torture that we wreak upon this planet that many believe will eventually spiral us out of existence.


    Co-Hosts, Rev. Maria D'Andrea and Mimi, will engage in a lively discussion that will take a look at the real connection we have with Mother Earth. Is she Fact or is she Fiction? You decide!

    Christian Adventure with Aaron & Chad Burns on Christian Devotions Speak UP!

    in Christianity

    Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott brings on two cousins whose backyard adventure hit the big screen, Aaron and Chad Burns.


    Aaron Burns graduated with his Masters of Business Administration from Oakland University in May of 2011. He served as the co-producer, production designer, score supervisor, and lead actor on Burns Family Studios' Pendragon: Sword of His Father. Aaron was recently married and lives with his wife Andrea in Lake Orion, MI.


    Chad Burns is the award-winning director and co-producer of Burns Family Studios' first feature film, Pendragon: Sword of His Father. Chad completed his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Control Systems and Human Factors at the University of Illinois in the spring of 2011. Chad recently married Angie in August 2011 and lives in Champaign, IL.


    These cousins have now created the Christian Hit, Beyond the Mask, an action-packed, Gospel-centered, historic, adventure film. It is set in the turbulent months leading up to the American Declaration for Independence.


    The story explores identity and redemption through the lens of one central question: "What does it take for a man to remake his name and redeem his identity?" The assassin-turned-vicar, Will Reynolds, tries two classic approaches to fixing himself. First, he hides behind a mask of assumed identity. Second, he works to do enough good to outweigh his bad past. When both approaches fail, he discovers that only in Christ's finished work can he find his own redemption.

    WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?

    in Christianity

    In this series we are going to explore, "Who do we say Jesus is"? We know that he saved us , but do we know Him ? Are we following Him?  What does it really mean to follow Jesus?


    This year we are on a mission to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Join us as we we go deeper into the Word and develop a more intimate relationship with Jesus not based on what someone else said , but based on what we know from the Word of God.


    The question is , Is he our lord, teacher, prophet, messiah, master,  savior,  deliver, and/ or friend?
