The selflessness of Muslims shines during Ramadan

Muslims in the Treasure Valley started fasting the lunar month of Ramadan on Saturday, May 27. This year’s fast is noteworthy because the international Islamic Center of Boise moved to a new location near the crossing of West Ustick Road and Christine Street in Boise. The new center was remodeled over several months and it opened in mid-April, just in time for this year’s Ramadan.

The Resurrection gave humankind permanent hope

It is interesting that the three major milestones in Jesus’ life have all been challenged by critics throughout history. They have scorned the probability of His virgin birth because it is so outside the norm of humanity. They have mocked His vicarious death because He hung on the cross so naked and weak. And they have challenged the idea that He rose from the grave after being three days in the grip of death. No one, they claim, gets out of this world alive. Death is the end of everything.
