pray

Winston Churchill was not known for being a spiritual man. But even this world-renowned leader who led Britain’s fight against the then seemingly unstoppable might of Hitler’s military admitted to praying, saying the practice “comforted him” in times of crisis and danger. I find this fact interesting because it demonstrates God’s design of the human…

setting goals

I want to talk to you about goals. I think goals are powerful. You certainly need them to be successful in athletics or in academics.

Hallelujah! Hosanna!
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
