"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Ukraine's Got Talent

    I am not sure what category to put this in - but if you have eight and a half minutes to spare, then click on to this video clip below. It shows the amazing sand artistry skills of 24 year old, Kseniya Simonova, winner of Ukraine's Got Talent 2009. What is unusual is not only the extraordinary creativity of the artist but also the strong emotional reaction of the audience as judges and members of the audience are brought to tears. Using a sand-filled light-box, she portrayed the story of the Soviet Union's sacrifices (almost 30,000,000 were killed) during the Great Patriotic War, as the USSR's fight against the Nazis in the Second World War is termed. Extraordinary!

    Update: I just found a second video by the same lady (obviously in the same competition) - outstanding once again (see below) - JS

    She does! Wow!

    The audience wasn't emotional. The people in the front row got sand in their eyes.
