Preparing for Summer

Zechariah 8:4, 5 4 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Old men and old women shall again sit In the streets of Jerusalem, Each one with his staff in his hand Because of great age. 5 The streets of the city Shall be full of boys and girls Playing in its streets.’ For many, summer […]

“CONSCIOUS AND INTENTIONAL MINISTRY: THIS IS WHY I AM HERE”

For some there is much anxiety and trepidation regarding the state of our country.
