This celebration of black culture and black success points to a bigger story for the church.A while ago, I stopped watching a certain type of black movie.In the wake of the black suffering that I saw in real life, I didn’t want to see another black slave scene. I didn’t want the water hoses of Alabama to once again wreck my hopes. I didn’t want to see us integrate another school, sports team, or profession despite the overwhelming odds. I didn’t avoid these films because I was ashamed of our history, but because my soul needed rest.The film Black Panther presented itself differently. It did not set out to highlight black suffering, but black achievement. Furthermore, it was black achievement in a black context. For black people, this was a film for us, by us, and about us.The Marvel movie—set in a fictional, futuristic African country (Wakanda) and featuring an African and African American cast—has even inspired black viewers to come to the movie dressed in traditional African clothing.This response might seem excessive, but given the history of cinema, the chance to center the black experience outside of the setting of extreme poverty is no small thing. Black audiences are celebrating the vision for a bigger story for black boys and girls; their support is a call to attend to the whole of black life and culture.American evangelicals might look to Black Panther as a starting point for dialogue and reflection as they increasingly address concerns about diversity, reconciliation, and representation in their churches and the church at large.This movie milestone exemplifies how deeply we as a people want to be our whole black selves and tell our whole stories. We resist the expectation that we must conform to cultural norms in order to be accepted in white spaces, including evangelical ...Continue reading...

Where is God?Isn't that the question most of us ask in times of trouble? How can we live with strong faith day in and day out when there's not even the certainty of the next heartbeat?Julie and John Manning are living those questions. In the middle of their son Hunter being delivered by C-section, Julie started feeling lightheaded and dizzy. The faces of the physician, surgical staff, and the anesthesiologist went blurry and their voices echoed in the background.The post Peace and Hope in the Midst of Suffering appeared first on Jim Daly.

Parenting is only for adults.That's what Dr. Emerson Eggerichs tells parents who struggle with what he calls the “family crazy cycle.”It works like this: When children feel unloved, they tend to react in ways that feel disrespectful toward their parents. When parents feel disrespected, they tend to react in ways that feel unloving to the child.And the cycle starts to spin.Parenting is only for adults because it's up to mom and dad – not the child – to stop the crazy cycle.The post Escaping the “Family Crazy Cycle” appeared first on Jim Daly.
Chances are good that you know a family that's been touched by the opioid epidemic. Roughly 60,000-65,000 individuals in the U.S. died from drug overdoses in 2016, with about 42,000 of those deaths caused by opioids. It's estimated that more than 11 million Americans misused prescription opioids last year, and nearly one million used heroin. Among the fastest growing groups of users are teens.Opioids are a class of drugs derived from or related to compounds naturally found in the opium poppy plant.The post Guest Blog: Three Things You Can Do Today to Help Your Child Avoid an Opioid Addiction Tomorrow appeared first on Jim Daly.
Valentine's Day marks the culmination of National Marriage Week here in the United States. Conceived as a “collaborative campaign to strengthen individual marriages, reduce the divorce rate, and build a culture that fosters strong marriages,” the effort mirrors the ongoing daily work of our ministry.The traditions surrounding Valentine's Day may frustrate some, but I've always enjoyed them. Jean has been my Valentine for three-plus decades now, and I consider her a gift.For my fellow male readers, I'm going to assume you've already taken care of the cards, the flowers and chocolates.The post Six Free Gifts for Valentine’s Day appeared first on Jim Daly.
God has given married couples a wedding present.Sex.The Lord designed physical intimacy to be enjoyed by both husbands and wives. First Corinthians 7 tells us that sex is rooted in mutuality. Husbands are to be sensitive to their wives' needs, and wives are to be sensitive to their husbands' needs. Marriage is about serving one another, not demanding your own rights.Sadly, we live in a broken world that undermines God's sacred designs. Secular culture portrays sex as primarily for the man.The post What Is God's Design for Sex in Marriage? appeared first on Jim Daly.
Yesterday's tragic violence at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, is the nation's third-deadliest school shooting in history – and the 7th such shooting in 2018 alone.Sadly, we've grown familiar with the awful rhythm of these barbaric events.First comes the text alert on our phone or we hear about the horror on social media. Or maybe we learn of it from the lament of a friend or a co-worker.Before we ask “How could this happen?” we instinctively ask “How many?”Of course, we intuitively know that even one is too many, and that behind every number is a name of someone who means the world to someone else.The post Heartache and Heroes in Florida School Shooting appeared first on Jim Daly.

The first salesman was disappointed to he discover that everyone in the region was shoeless. He called his wife and told her, “I'm coming home. No one here wears shoes.”The second salesman arrived a short time later and was immediately excited. He called his wife and told her, “Honey, everybody here needs shoes.”Same circumstances, but two very different outlooks.The post Reframing Life’s Disappointments appeared first on Jim Daly.
