    Henry Brown prayed for a way to escape. He was a slave in Richmond, Virginia, and desperately wanted to be free. He finally felt his prayer was answered when he was inspired by a unique idea.

  • Success In Simplicity

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 13, 2021

    C. S. Lewis, the brilliant atheist who became one of the most famous Christians of the 20th century, said, "It is no good asking for a simple religion after all, real things are not simple." Little did he realize, when he wrote those words in his early book, Mere Christianity, just how more

  • God's Rewards

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Feb 21, 2021

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Feb 17, 2021
