Today is Sanctity-of-Life Sunday in America. This coming Friday, January 22, will be the 43rd anniversary of the dreadful Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision permitting abortion at will, mostly for the convenience of the parent(s).

Well, Christmas Day has come and gone. The year, 2015, has come and is almost gone. This coming Friday will be the first day of the new year and this will be a new beginning for each of us. Let us look back to the past year for just a few moments. There have been […]

Before Jesus was born, an angel visited Mary and Joseph to explain that the situation was of God and that they were to call His name ’Jesus’. Why was His name to be Jesus? Because He would save His people from their sins. The word Jesus means Savior. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was […]
