The Benefits of Praying for Our Country

No Comments Church, Community

Regent University - prayWhen God was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, it was because of the wickedness of the people in the country.

No Comments School

Jesus is always there—every step of the way. I know, first hand, that it is easy to get discouraged.

If you and I were having a conversation in the hallway and I suddenly stopped, looked both ways, firmly but politely grabbed you by the arm, pulled you to the side, and whispered to you in all seriousness, “Aslan is on the move!” you would probably consider discretely calling for some help out of concern for your own safety.  Unless, of course, you know who Aslan is and then you might chuckle and recommend that I take a short break from reading C.S. Lewis books  (just a short one though). Read more
