  • And has made us kings and priests to his God and father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever Amen. Rev. 1:6

    The sacrifice of Jesus has given to all believers the privileges that had belonged to ancient Israel (Exodus 29:1-9); 1 Peter 2:0-10). Jesus Christ has made believers to be priests and kings now, both witness and worship (Revelation 5:10).

  • Someone once said, “You can’t go home again.” But the good news of the Bible is you can go home again. Man was created for fellowship with God. Sin breaks that fellowship and causes separation from God. In spite of our rebellion God still loves us and through the death of Christ made provision for the forgiveness of our sins and our return.

  • The Census will be mailed to 134 million households by mid March. The Census counts everyone in the place where they live and sleep most of the time. So, for each person, the form asks for their name, gender, age, race, ethnicity and relationship. It also asks whether you rent or own a home. The 2010 Census does not ask for your immigration status, income, or tax information and will never ask for your social security number or bank account.

  • The idea of community has been one that has long been of interest to me.

    One of the definitions I found was: “A group of interacting organisms sharing an environment. In human communities, intent, belief, resources, preferences, needs, risk and other conditions may be present, affecting the identity of the participants and their degree of cohesiveness.
