  • The ‘tocayo’ of Christ 

    In my family we have two new babies: Lily Aaron and Zachary Jack.

    Lily is my niece Jennifer’s third daughter and Zach is my nephew Shane’s third son. Both babies were born just a few weeks apart, Lily in July and Zachary in August. My sister now has six grandchildren.

    If Lily had been a boy she would be Jack Aaron. Jack is my dad’s name. Aaron is Lily’s dad Marc’s middle name.

    Got all that?

  • God’s Grace is Glorious

    I love a good story. Recently I read one that meets all the qualifications for me. The late Vance Havner was a Baptist evangelist and he related the following story told to him by a friend.

    Dr. Clyde Turner pastored a church in Kentucky. A young boy in his church was a holy terror that no one could handle. The boy stopped coming to church and Dr. Turner said he nor anyone else rushed to persuade the youth to return.
