Did he?The answer is yes. And no.Yes, Soros is funding the the ad campaign for the group claiming to represent 170 Evangelical … [Read more...]

6.5.13infographic

The Oklahoma tornado that ripped through the Oklahoma City area on May 20 killing 20 -- and adding to the 24 already killed in another F5 tornado nearby just 11 days earlier -- shocked us all and brought us to our knees in prayer.

Why I’ve Stopped Showing Up on Time at Your Church

Countdown

You may not have noticed, but it seems a lot of people have stopped showing up on time at your church. Maybe you're one of them. Which might explain why you haven't noticed.Noticing that people have stopped showing up on time at church seems to have been what started the, well, I guess you could call it a rant of sorts.

To remember those who never came home.But it's all too easy to only remember those who … [Read more...]

Over the last decade, adoption has moved more into the … [Read more...]
