God’s love satisfies spiritual hunger. Nothing else can.
Jesus loved a party. Often we read how Jesus participated in a party or a dinner or special event in people’s lives. He understood the importance of marking milestones and appreciating people. It’s an example we would do well to follow.

Having come through the elections in one piece, some of us are nonetheless a little worse for the wear. Frustrated with the negativity and whatever-it-takes-to-win attitudes, along with the obvious media bias, some of us pastors took up the fight for Godly morals and values, the upholding of our Constitution, and good old fashioned truth.
