I Wonder…

I wonder what will happen tomorrow…or the day after tomorrow. Will the ’causes’ that I agreed with have passed? Will those I disagreed with have failed? Will the candidates I voted for have won, or been defeated? Obviously, I don’t know that, and no one does-despite what all the conspiracy theorists out there say! One […]

The Test

How do you know if something is ‘legit’? How do you know if you can trust a person–a teacher, a boss, a politician, a minister? Is it possible to know, for example, whether or not a Church or ‘religious organization’ is the ‘real deal’ or not? Is there a ‘litmus test’?   Actually, there is! […]

Boldly Follow God’s Call!
