After the Epiphany

By the Numbers

Numbers are important. When I go fishing, I can only keep 25 sand bass, 25 catfish, 25 crappie, 5 stripers, and 5 hybrid bass per day, then I have to quit or I could get fined by the Game Warden. When Peter cast his net on the right side of the boat as Jesus instructed, […]

An Every Sunday Christian

An Every Sunday Christian “Don’t stop meeting together with other believers,which some people have gotten into the habit of doing.” (Hebrews 10:25) Doesn’t that seem like an odd title? Isn’t a Christian an every Sunday church goer? Actually, church attendance has been an issue since the first century. Perhaps it is getting worse. In today’s […]
