On Behalf of Our Family–Thank You!

Stephen and Beth Anne Flick

A number of months ago while using a book that had been gifted to me from my Grandma Flick’s personal library, I found a small handwritten note: “When my husband passed away, I sought the Lord and through my family and friends, He helped me.” Soon after my discovery I gave it to my dad, knowing he would appreciate this sentimental find. I had forgotten about that little note until just a few days ago, when my dad pulled the same note out of his Bible and raised it as his own personal testimony. On behalf of my family I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to our extended family and friends who have lifted us up during this difficult time of loss.

On July 23, while returning home from a trip to visit family and close friends, my parents were involved in a tragic car accident that claimed the life of my mother and seriously injured my father. Dad was taken to a hospital in Roanoke, Virginia where he received care until his discharge four days later on July 27. Since bringing Dad home, we have all worked hard on his physical healing as well as preparing a beautiful service for my mother. We were blessed by the presence of extended family members and close friends from near and far at her funeral on August 2 and interment the morning of August 3. Our friends and family in the local community and from distances far away have been a real hand of grace in our lives through this difficult tragedy. We deeply appreciate your continued prayer and support as we continue to grieve and seek the Lord’s guidance in every step forward.

Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D., America's Founding Fathers and the Bible. Contrary to the contemporary mantra that America was birthed as a secular nation, the historical evidence demonstrates that America was founded by Christians who wished to enjoy the liberty to freely express their Christian faith. Lamentably, Christians have forgotten and neglected the Christian heritage bequeathed to them by America's Founding Fathers and have allowed secularists to disparage and deny what was given to them at such a great price. America's Founding Fathers and the Bible briefly describes a portion of America's Christian heritage, particularly during the rise of nationalism when America was shaping its national government.  Read more...
Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D., When the United States Capitol Was a Church. So deep and strong was the relationship of government to the Christian faith in America that the relationship was recognized in a variety of ways. Few realize that the United States Capitol was used as a church for years before it was used to convene the United States Congress. For nearly three-quarters of a century, the United States Capitol was used for church services. In fact, it became a meeting place for a number of churches in Washington, D. C. While secularists wish to keep this and many other similar historical facts quiet, the sincere Christian will wish to celebrate the spiritual heritage our Founding Fathers have bequeathed to us.  Read more...

Certainly, the triumphs are easy for us to endure, but the trials are a different story. Being human, it is natural to celebrate the triumphs over the trials. We all feel good when good things happen or when we witness good things happening to our friends and family, but for Read more...

One of the favorite places Beth and I used to sit and share in each other's lives was the swing on our front porch. Handcrafted by Amish Dutch in western Pennsylvania years ago, it was brought to our home by Mom Flick when she came to live with us in Mississippi following her diagnosis of terminal liver cancer in 1998. But since this past summer, that porch swing which has been a silent observer of so much of our family's history is now—for theRead more...
