    I was watching the replay of the Wimbledon final last Monday morning at the gym. Andy Roddick had fought back to be 2 all at the end of the fourth set.

    By Rev Bill Stewart If you were watching TV on the April 12, 2009, you may have seen pictures like this one of Captain Richard Phillips shortly after his rescue. Captain Richard Phillips According to U.S. Navy snipers fatally shot three pirates holding an American cargo-ship more

  • 3. Built Upon A Living Stone

    God brings us into his church to be built into something that will proclaim his glory to the world, his mighty acts in the way we live together.

    Picture a team of stonemasons, preparing to build a great temple; perhaps it’s the replacement for Solomon’s temple that was destroyed by the armies of Babylon. They pick up all the stones that look the right shape to fit into the wall of a building and put them in a pile, ready to use more
