Here is the Church

Remember that rhyme we all did with the hand motions as children? “Here is the church. Here is the steeple. Open the doors and where are the people?” As a youth who grew up in the church, that always shocked me a bit. I thought, “why wouldn’t people be in the church?” My parents tried… Continue reading Here is the Church

More Goodness

I’ve heard a lot of people say that despite the evil in the world that most people are good. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe there is a single person on this earth who has any inherit good in them. Not you, not me. We are selfish and evil beyond comprehension. This isn’t my… Continue reading More Goodness

For those who believe in him as part of the Trinity, therefore being God himself, his… Continue reading Miracles in the Everyday

Not Just Another Book

We recognize that it doesn’t… Continue reading Not Just Another Book
