Among the Faithful

Sherry with Aunt Cleo (97), Aunt Gay (95) and Aunt Fay (91) Having a reputation for godliness and faithfulness seems to be more and more of a rarity in our day. Young people in our churches are leaving the faith of their parents in droves. Even those who are considered faithful ... Continue

Committed to the Church

Dealing With Sin Biblically

A few years ago I heard a pastor apologize to his church and ask forgiveness for having children's church and separating the family during the most important time of the week.
