I subscribe to an excellent free resource from an organization called Koinonia House, the ministry of Bible teacher Chuck Missler. It’s called “K-House eNews” and it’s a weekly e-mail update that includes brief news highlights from around the world and medium-sized articles on Scripture and life. If you’re interested, you can subscribe here.
The past two issues have featured an EXCELLENT series on “Faith and Miracles” that blessed me very much, so I thought I’d share it here. There are six articles, each about a page-and-a-half long.

Faith and Miracles: a six-part series of articles from Koinonia House
Part I: Faith in What?
“Have faith,” people will often say when troubles come along, even people who don’t claim to follow Jesus Christ. Billy Joel once crooned about “keeping the faith” complete with a music video. Faith is popular. When people tell us to have “faith” though, we ought to ask, “Faith in what?…

Part III: Even Our Hairs – Hamster Time
When we hear [miraculous] sorts of stories, we’re grateful for God’s coming through in times of great need. However, we don’t always think that God is willing to take care of us in the “small” things too, things that maybe not all people will recognize as important. Fear and doubt edge into our prayer-lives in a variety of ways…

Part VI: But If Not
“But see, there’s a problem when Grandma prays to be healed and she isn’t healed. She thinks she doesn’t have strong enough faith or that God doesn’t love her. What about Grandma?” – An anonymous skeptic …
