The mystery of the Ark of the Covenant, part 1

Be a doer!

Do you know lazy people? Those people who do absolutely nothing to contribute to the betterment and building up of society? We as Christians can fall into the same rut if we don’t show our faith to God and the world by our actions! We can become...

 

Blessed unity

Happy Mother's Day!

What does it mean to be a mother? Is it defined by just giving birth to a child? Is it defined by just being called “Mom” by that child? Is it defined by just having the same last name as that child? No, it’s way more than all that! It’s...
