Greetings to all my Brothers and Sisters here in the House Church Network. My name is Timothy Yeghian.   Isn't it tough to introduce yourself.   Folks want to know who we are, but it isn't about us; it is about Jesus.I'll just tell you who I am and if people fall asleep ... well, serves me right? I am 66 now and came to Christ in ... I am looking up, which means I don't remember.       Let's see, ... 1973. I am not from the Catholic side of the fence or the Protestant sea of denominations.   Nope.   I am one of the few Christians whom you might meet who comes from the Oriental Orthodox.  And the largest of that is the Armenian branch.   We kicked Rome to the curb in 451 AD.  I don't think we

When reading what Jesus says, many times it seems his topics are unrelated, so the natural tendency is to grab onto parts that we think we understand while missing the point of his discourse which runs like a thread tying together all the seemingly unrelated topics. The discourse in Matthew 18 is one such example. But before getting to Matthew 18 a foundation to his discourse begins in Matthew 16. Having traveled to the north of Israel to Caesarea Philippi due west of Tyre in Syria.  They stood in front of 3 pagan temples, one specifically was called the Gates of Hades, where the Greeks believed was the entrance to the underworld, where they performed immoral acts of worship.   With this bac
As you would consider a church in your home, remember that you are acting upon an ancient Biblical and a historical precedent. A practical one, too. You are acting upon the Word of God - not reacting or overreacting to something or someone else. You are building upon the foundation of Jesus Christ, the solid rock. Do not however expect too much nor too little from your initial endeavors. Thunder and lightning won't occur. Christian meetings, although essential, are not and were not meant to be an end in themselves. Their purpose is to equip, edify, encourage, and excite the saints for something else - ministry or service. The popular view that spirituality is essentially measured by the numb

Lately I have been thinking about sharing some experiences that might encourage some of you here. From 1995 to 2010 my wife and I met in homes with several families and experienced some wonderful times in the Lord. The core group was not particularly focused on house church but were simply drawn together to share what God was doing in our lives, to pray for one another and to encourage one another to reach out to others in need. When we found out that this concept was more wide spread, we were excited to find others around the country doing the same things. I found many contacts on the internet and attended retreats and conferences and wondered how we could let others know of the freedom we

During the American Civil War, the Poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the words to the well-known Christmas Carol that begins with "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day." Some time back, I heard about the story behind it, and it encouraged me. Longfellow is more famous today for the poem, "Paul Revere's Ride," and "Hiawatha." At the time he wrote "Christmas Bells," he had already lost his wife and his son had been wounded in the war. In the song we see his despair of ever seeing the "Peace On Earth, Good Will To Men" that the church bells and and the Christmas Story presents to us. However, he recovered his faith and hope by the end of the poem much like the Psalmist Asaph in the Bible. Th
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow What The Heart Of The Young Man Said To The Psalmist. Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream! For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul. Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way; But to act, that each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day. Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave. In the world’s broad field of battle, In the bivouac of Life, Be not like dumb, driven cat

J. B. Phillips writes in the preface to his translation of Acts, that one cannot spend several months in close study of this book "without being profoundly stirred, and to be honest, disturbed. Because he is seeing Christianity, the real thing, in action for the first time in history.... Here we are seeing the Church in its first youth, valiant and unspoiled ... a body of ordinary men and women joined in an unconquerable fellowship never before seen on this earth... for surely, this is the Church as it was meant to be. It is vigorous and flexible, for these are the days before it became fat and short of breath through prosperity or muscle bound by over organization."
