ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Aging Gracefully – “Every day, we are all building the house we will live in when old age comes. Some of us are building a beautiful palace. Some are building a dark prison. What are you building? Perhaps you are building a house that will prove beautiful and comfortable through the long winter of your old age. You are decorating it tastefully, filling it with ornaments designed to bring pleasure and comfort in the days to come—deeds of gratitude and grace, acts of generosity and selfless love. On every wall, you are hanging pictures that are as meaningful as they are beautiful—warm friendships in Christ, mentoring … Read More

When New England Rejected God

Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Reviving New England2 Comments

or nearly three hundred years, New England had been a beacon of light to the nations. From the earliest days of the Puritanical devotion of the first settlers, to the heartfelt revival preaching of the Great Awakening, to the evangelistic and missionary zeal of nineteenth century believers, the Northeast had manifested a consistent witness to all nations of the world. But by the early twentieth century, New England began to grow cold. Today, the current landscape is but a shadow of the glory it once was. Like the apostate people of ancient Israel before the captivity, the people of New England have gone wayward and no longer call on the Lord their God. How did this happen? There are at … Read More

When New England Set the World Aflame!

Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Reviving New England1 Comment

t the dawn of the nineteenth century, Christianity in America was waning and the world sat helplessly in the clutches of The Enlightenment—a radical movement away from faith and religion, towards science, culture, and philosophy. There were many who questioned how Christianity would fare through these years, and hope seemed dim. But a spark would be ignited in New England that would set America ablaze and shine the light of the gospel to the farthest reaches of the unknown world. This would be an age of missions, and it would all find its origin in a relatively small piece of American territory. The event known as the Second Great Awakening was the single largest religious movement in our nation’s history. … Read More

When God Awakened a Nation

Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Reviving New England0 Comments

he Puritan pilgrims that had come over from England had ventured to American shores in attempt to establish “pure” churches. They failed to create “New Jerusalem” but succeeded in creating a society that embraced Christianity. Within two generations of their arrival, zeal for purity in religion and for the law of God eventually produced hypocritical legalism and rigid formalism. By the end of the seventeenth century, many of the institutional churches in New England had a form of godliness, yet were empty of spiritual power. Their love for God and others had grown cold, while their fear of “worldliness” soon became manic. The hysteria came to a head during the 1692-1693 Salem Witch Trials, where twenty people were executed for … Read More

Thoughts on the 2016 New Hampshire Primary

Nate PickowiczChristianity0 Comments

‘m a New Hampshire native. I was born and raised here, and now pastor a church here. Needless to say, these are my people. Now, New Hampshire isn’t known for much: Lake Winnipesaukee, the Old Man in the Mountain, the first American serial killer, and Adam Sandler… amongst a few other things. But one thing we are known for is our Presidential primary. Every four years, the nation looks to us to see how we’re voting and hoping to gauge how things might turn out in the general election. It’s an exciting time, as all eyes are on us! Last night, we held the first primary of 2016, and the results were, well, interesting. Our winners: a Democratic socialist from Vermont … Read More

When the Reformation Came to New England

Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Reviving New England1 Comment

hen most people think of the Protestant Reformation, their minds often latch onto the image of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the castle at Wittenberg on October 31, 1517. From there, other names such as Calvin, Beza, Knox, and Zwingli are not too far behind. But what if I were to tell you that the Protestant Reformation had a strong and vibrant surge on the shores of America in the seventeenth century? Most Christian history textbooks all but forget the most radical of Reformers who fled persecution and settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts in the 1620s and 1630s. In the wake of the Reformation, Europe had its hands full trying to figure out what to do … Read More
