Issue 77  | Autumn 2023

The theme of this issue of PNN is, “To do Justice, love Kindness, and Walk Humbly with God”.  We are currently living in an era when much of the news we get is disturbing – again and again we hear reports of hateful words and violent acts towards innocent citizens.  I’m sure that there are far more situations where justice, and kindness, and humbleness take place.  However, these don’t seem to be as newsworthy.  You and I aspire to let our actions speak for us – that doing Justice, loving Kindness, and walking Humbly with God ultimately is stronger than hate and divisiveness.

I hope you enjoy the articles in this issue and that they support your ministry.

Issue 76  |  Summer 2023

The theme of this issue of PNN is “Be Strong and Courageous. Do Not Be Afraid.” We are living in a very stressful time. There is no end to the things one can be very worried about: the ongoing war in Ukraine and the suffering it is causing, the harsh strife between political views/ political parties within America, our domestic inflation rate, and perhaps your own health concerns. In the Old Testament Joshua 1:9, the setting is one wherein a fierce battle is about to ensue. The Israelite warriors are told not to fear for the LORD is on their side. Today, we too need to keep in mind that the LORD is our strength and shield and will go with us wherever we go.

I hope you enjoy the articles in this issue and that they support your ministry.

Issue 75  |  Spring 2023

Our culture dotes on staying young – each year, people spend countless dollars on lotions and potions and programs to delay their physical aging. However, the Bible speaks of old age as being a blessing from God. All of us know individuals who exemplify that blessing. You and I aspire to provide a similar example as we ourselves grow older.

I hope you enjoy the articles in this issue and that they support your ministry.

Issue 74  |  Winter 2023

The theme of this issue of PNN is My Peace I Give to You.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Down through the ages, this scripture from John 14:27 has meant so much to Christians. The words speak volumes when you are beset by really tough times. The words express the result of God being with us – always.

I hope you enjoy the articles in this issue and that they support your ministry.
