  • COLUMN: God is with us, 24-7

    Every hour of every day, or as many say 24-7, was the experience of Enoch.  Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5:21-24). He was always with God. In Psalm 73:23 the Psalmist speaks of always being in God’s presence. He believed, “It is good to be near God.”

    How do we walk with God continually through the day? We must invite God into our lives 24-7.

    To always be with God means we are held in God’s hands.

  • Customer service hits new low when store runs out of muscle

    When a refrigerator croaks – when its compressor bleats its last breath – you have no choice.

    You must get another one – pronto – or risk losing all those interesting things you have stored that probably should have been thrown out weeks earlier.

    But that’s beside the point.
