Nearly 40 years ago, when I was a student at Biola and met my future life partner I anticipated many things, but no matter what one anticipates the future is never certain.

I have not travelled extensively, but many of the places I have gone I have attended church or visited various cathedrals and worship sites.

Ears to Hear Sunday January 28

Proverbs 3:13-26 13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who obtains understanding. 14 For her benefit is more profitable than silver, and her gain is better than gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies, and none of the things you desire can compare with her. 16 Long life is in […]
