Ah the power of the internet! You can find almost everything you need to know about almost everything with a simple Google search. Type in your destination, add the word “reviews” to it, and you’ll be bombarded with articles and posts about where to go, what to do, where to eat, where to stay, etc., etc. The problem is that…

Come To Church With Me

I don’t know about other parts of the USA, or the world, but here in the South it isn’t uncommon at all for folks to invite other folks to church. It is – usually – akin to inviting a friend over for a game of bridge.  Usually. It is a little – nay, a lot different when a Christian extends…

Letter From God At Christmas

(This is not something I wrote. It is something I grokked from the internet a few years ago. I think it is entirely appropriate and “right”.)
