Ready or Not!

My dad has always been interested in prophecy and the study of last things, which means I grew up in a state of urgency. My dad is convinced that God is painting a picture through the heavens with a blood red moon over Jerusalem on July 27th, aka the 15th of Av, the day that […]

So I was asked to teach on the topic of evil in student ministries yesterday.  Here is my basic outline: Hi, … I am Miriam and I am the one who sends you all the emails that you don’t read!  I work here at church and I teach at Trinity as well.  I was a […]

Dear Clayton, I have written many letters about what I hope for you, advice I want to share, and prayers I pray for you.  In a way, this is no different, but I do want to acknowledge my specific sentiments for you on the occasion of your graduation from college! (And, I am sure it […]
