Buy Yourself A New Year’s Present

It's the New Year, and maybe you have some Christmas money left. You could do a lot worse than treating yourself to something that will help you in your Bible study.

The video over at the ReLit site leaves you in no … [Read more...]

US City No. 24 – Seattle – A Church in Tacoma, Washington
