DADDY LET’S GO!
A little girl with shining eyes,
Her little face aglow,
Said, "Daddy, it is almost time
For Church......let’s go!"
They teach us there of Jesus’ love, Of how he died for all
Those who on Him call.”

It was a beautiful sunny day in California when we arrived for a half day training and then an

When we let go of money, we are letting go of part of ourselves and part of our security. But this is precisely why it is important to do it. It is one way to obey Jesus’ command to deny ourselves.… When we give money, we are releasing a little more of our egocentric selves and a little more of our
Forgiveness is to release, to let go, relinquish, get rid of sin—ours and those we’ve been victimized by. Dr. Lewis Smedes, one of my professors at Fuller wrote about what forgiveness is not.

Let’s go back to their argument. If the issue isn’t really about abortion but a woman’s right to control her own body, then why doesn’t the pro-choice agenda include drugs and prostitution? Aren’t laws against those just as restrictive to a woman’s right to choose what she will and will not do with
