Ebook: "The Ten Words" subtitled: "Loving God and Neighbor" by Stan Baldwin. Published on Smashwords.com. Words 24,130. Are the Ten Words from God an adequate way to understand his will for our lives? They’re often considered an outdated list of do's and don'ts that add up to a guilt-ridden, legalistic way of life. But as Stan Baldwin probes the purpose and meaning of the Ten Commandments, readers will gladly discover that these instructions can aptly be called God's design for the best life possible.

FREE ebook "That Awful Silence" by Stan Baldwin. Download for free at http://www.Smashwords.com/books/view/167901 and released through many other outlets such as, iBooks, Amazon, Sony, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Diesel, Baker & Taylor. The stories included in this short book include those who have sensed that awful silence of God.
At different times, places and degrees, we all encounter and experience suffering. It may be physical pain, financial or emotional loss, the death of someone we love. During those times we ask, "Where is God when it hurts the most?" When tragedy strikes or when loneliness threatens to almost snuff out our last flickering hopes. God seems the most distant then. When seeking answers, where do we turn? How do we respond? How do we go on? Are we able to say along with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego of the fiery furnace fame, "Our God, whom we serve, will deliver us. But even if he does not, we will serve him still"?
"Here I Stand" - It began the Protestant Reformation when Martin Luther nailed his "95 Theses" to the Wittenburg Palace church door in October 1517. Now these 495 years later, as the world moves forward, is it time for God's people to say again: "Here I stand"? Join us in recollecting Martin Luther's historic stand for biblical light and truth in a recent sermon series.
Sermon Series - "Praising God for Detours" - Three times in a row, it seemed like God pushed Joseph off the Golden State Freeway onto a bumpy dirt road. How do we keep being faithful when Heaven continually puts detours in our path? Actually, detours are good news . . . if you trust the Person Who is setting out the orange cones.
