    This article from Eternity News, titled “Big Brick Story Helps Kids Learn the Bible,” highlights the incredible way Joel Moroney grabs the attention of young believers through LEGO blocks. Every one of his Bible lessons follows with a LEGO build that matches the curriculum. Speaking to the success of his lessons, Moroney explains, “[God’s Word is] not something boring and dry, but it is engaging and it is relevant and it is exciting. LEGO is a way to get into that and to grab their attention, so that they hear the even more incredible message of Jesus.”

    2. BIG QUESTIONS: “What Can the Persecuted Church Learn from Chinese House Churches” by Hannah Nation

      This article from Radical News, titled “What Can the Persecuted Church Learn from Chinese House Churches,” takes a look at the resilient spirit of house churches in China and encourages readers to follow after their perseverance even in the midst of persecution. Hannah Nation tackles a couple of themes she notices within these churches– one of them being the remembrance of God’s sufficient grace – “By God’s grace, this is what I’ve learned from them: Grace gives you the freedom to see those who harm you not as your enemies and union with Christ empowers you to go forth sacrificially.”

      3. EDITORIAL: “God Is Always At Work For Us And For Our Good” by W. Robert Godfrey

        This article from The Christian Post, titled “God Is Always At Work For Us And For Our Good,” studies Psalm 18 closely and offers the passage as evidence that God works powerfully even when we cannot see it. W. Robert Godfrey observes David’s poetic imagery as he reaches out to the Lord with a cry for help. When explaining the implications of the passage, Godfrey wrote, “[David] records not what he saw with his physical eyes, but what his eyes of faith saw happen. Although this awesome power of God usually remains hidden from view, it is absolutely real, and it is exercised for the well-being of His people.”

        Although every Hub article is selected to foster discussion about modern church structure, not every idea and opinion expressed in the linked articles may fully align with the views and mission of Koinesúnē Magazine. All the same, we seek to uplift and celebrate the different ministries working around the globe.
