     Who would be better to turn to for advice on living the Christian life than the Apostle Paul?

    Paul told the Corinthians, “Be an imitator of me, just as I am an imitator of Christ” (I Corinthians 11:1).

    He said in Philippians 1:21, “For me to live is Christ ….”

    In II Timothy 4:7 he says as he comes to the end of his life, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.”

  • FOR YOUR HEALTH: Flu and pneumonia shots can be lifesavers

     Having the flu can be hard for anyone but it is extra risky for people with diabetes. Diabetes can weaken your body’s ability to fight the flu virus.
