Love and Truth – Christian Fellowship

By On August 20, 2019

I just don’t see why you are such a stickler for details. Christianity is about love and if you keep insisting on those things, we’ll lose everyone. The writing is on the wall.

Happy Volunteers for Christ

By On July 23, 2019

“What time do you want me there? Really? I can’t believe it’s my turn to volunteer again. It just seems like I was there and did that last week. Volunteering three times a month is a bit much to expect of anyone. I’m finding it to be a real intrusion into my life. Sorry for the rant. I will take…

Rarely do you get advance notice that trouble is about to strike. One day a person has plans and hopes but the next day everything is shattered. Today is so different from yesterday; a huge frightening freefall into an abyss of darkness. Their world has been abruptly turned upside down. Swirling around them are thick, dark clouds of despair.
