He writhed on the floor while men and women gathered around him hurling their prayers. That’s the best way I can describe it. "Come out in Jesus name!" they said, and he writhed all the more as if in pain, and certainly in turmoil. The voices rose, "Come out you unclean spirit!"

On our third floor, you will find a Carpet Ball Table… The original surfaced for Camp Emmanuel in the early 1990’s. We thought about building one since then…one man measured, another man measured, even I measured and intended to build it. But it was never built.

FAITH AND AN ELEVATOR
If I stand on the ground floor of a 27-floor building and press the button for an elevator, I am confident (I have faith) that the elevator will arrive. Indeed, it does, and the door opens.
I am now presented with a vehicle that, I am confident (I have faith), will
