Breaking An Entering
Around 2 am last year on the Sunday before Christmas, there was a large crash in the family room of my home. It jarred me awake and then I waited, trying to figure out what would cause noise of that magnitude. After the initial crash there was
Unplugged, Uncut, and Uncensored
We really have created a place of grace. It was bound to happen. At some point it was inevitable that we’d let something slip. Perhaps you’ll be disappointed (and I’ll apologize on the front end) but your pastor does use a few four letter ...
There are two types of families . . .
