For the first time in the history of the Pentecostal Evangel Weekly Drawing, a Nebraska reader was selected as a winner in the contest earlier this month. The home of the Cornhuskers is the 45th state in the U.S. to produce a prize recipient since the contest debuted in March 2006. Only Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, […]
The news caught me by surprise, but probably should not have. E-books have now outpaced hardcover sales for the first time. I’m guessing this is one of those irreversible trends, like the advent of income tax or the creation of a new federal agency.

Sponsored by Ozarks Honor Flight, the vets were brought to see the World War II Memorial that was built in their honor. The flight included family and other escorts. […]
Popular Science has posted a photo gallery on their website entitled “2011’s Top 10 New Species.”
New species? Absolutely. Science is nowhere near cataloging the wealth of life forms created on, and in, this planet. For an example of that second category, consider the devil’s worm, a newly discovered worm species found more than half a mile underground in […]
Thanks to funding received during May, the Key Bearers ministry has underwritten the cost of providing at least 10 million copies of the Pentecostal Evangel to the incarcerated since 1996.
