Accepting those Stigmatized by the Society

by host4kfn

In 1995, we as a family moved to Bangalore from the US after 21 years of secular job.  All those were years when the Lord was changing me from a hypocrite to a person with deep convictions and desire to live a God honouring practical Christian life. What always challenged me is the fact that […]

Talking Your Way Through Marriage

by host4kfn

Nisha and John were married for a year when I met them. They are well educated, with management degrees from a reputed institution. Before marriage they were in college together. They shared a lot of things, spoke about many things and had good fun together. After graduation, they landed jobs in different IT companies. They […]

Don’t Be At Haste…

by host4kfn

Have you ever been a victim of Hasty Generalization? Let me explain what I’m talking about with an illustration. (Disclaimer: All characters appearing in this illustration are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead is purely coincidental…) John and Thomas had been friends for some time, and they were seriously thinking of partnering […]

Modesty: A Dying Virtue

by host4kfn

About ten years ago, as I can recall, it became common for young women — my peers — to wear spaghetti strap tank tops, leaving their bra straps visible to the public gaze. When this practice first came to my attention, I was, in agreement with my mother and grandmother, horrified. Just a few years […]

Is Modesty an Issue in the Church Today?

by host4kfn

Yes. And it’s not just a problem for males. Women have issues with it as well. But it is true that males are more visually spring-loaded to lust or to think unhelpful thoughts when they see a certain picture or person, so that’s where I’ll focus here. My concern today is that it seems like […]

The fire caught up in […]

The Practice of Prayer

1.  Twice a day set apart a minimum of fifteen minutes each as soon as waking up and just before going to bed. 2.  Sit up straight with your legs stretched and body straight and the body relaxed.  A kneeling position with hands and head slightly lifted up with eyes closed is found to have […]

Why this Kolaveri Di!

by host4kfn

I was not really surprised when my school going daughter one day returned home humming Why this Kolaveri Di. I didn’t bother to ask her where she got the song. That question would have been irrelevant. A few months ago Kolaveri Di was the talk of the nation and a rage on the internet. Just type the word ‘why’ on Google search bar and […]

The Art of Meditating

by host4kfn

The frenetic pace of our affluent life style has overwhelmed the individual to a point where people look for escape valves and releases. In spite of the human race caught up in a rat race God in His infinite mercy, deigns to speak to His children in a language that they can understand- a language […]

Mobile Phone Addiction

by host4kfn

Although not as deadly as other forms of addiction, mobile phone addiction is still real trouble. Whether it is texting, checking out social networking sites, instant messaging, or calling; fixation in the use of the cell phone is already considered by many as an addiction. Psychologists argue that this dependence is unhealthy and term it as an “obsessive compulsive disorder.” If […]
