If we know God better, we should be better equipped to love Him more and to live accordingly (live in, not of – fotonni).

  • Do We Know Its Christmas

    It is December. And that means many Americans and others around the world are really stressed. If you were alive in the 1980s, you might remember the advent of several types of “aid” campaigns.
