  • Lifted

    Contributed by Jack Kale on Sep 29, 2017

    Lifted The lift looked like some kind of futuristic interplanetary transport device.

  • It Felt Like Abuse...but, Lesson Learned

    Contributed by Pastor Randall Timblin on Jan 17, 2017

    So there I am. I’m sitting on the couch...with my eyes closed...attempting to nap. I hadn’t felt good all day.
