Stand up for what you believe, but do it with love for one another

| April 15, 2017

Standing up for your own views is a good thing. Recognizing the views and values of others is a great thing. Coming together in respect for others is much too rare a thing … but it is likely the only way we’ll find peace while living here on this earth. Whether or not you accepted […]

He has risen …

| March 27, 2016

   Happy Easter to all believers and those yet to acknowledge God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.  Today is the day we recognize the fullfilment of the earthly life of Jesus.
