Setting the Example
June 18, 2013

This morning I want to start off by saying happy Father’s Day.  Even though today is a Hallmark holiday, I think it is, like Mother’s Day a good idea.  Scripture commands us to honour our Father’s and Mother’s so a special day is a good start.  Of course they should […] [READ MORE]

The Promise of Persecution
May 24, 2013

I don’t know if you realized this or not but we are oddities.  We are not the norm; rather we are the abnormal.  We are the minority.  Today as we sit here in our lovely church we came unhindered.  The government does not have agents sitting in a black sedan […] [READ MORE]
