    God wants to mold our lives, if we will let Him, and make us into beautiful creations.

In preparing for this sermon, I read that before it is glazed and fired, the potter may reshape and redo the pottery, if ...read more

    Those of us who have e-mail usually get little stories or sayings from our friends. Sometimes I really read them, other times I don’t.

We start at one point and end up at the opposite end. Well, Saul is heading down the road to Damascus from Jerusalem, ...read more
