    Jeremiah 29:11 is not about our own personal fulfillment, it’s about our spiritual fulfillment. If we take scripture out of context, we run the risk of making scripture fit our life, instead of making our life fit scripture.

But instead of going back to World War II or the Civil War or something else that happened a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, let’s go back to September 11, 2001. How many ...read more

  • Invisible Man

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Apr 27, 2009
    based on 5 ratings
     | 5,615 views

Ralph Waldo Ellison; encouraged to make music and to write by his father; inspired by the civil rights activism of his mother, began to ...read more
