The speaker this week, quoted recent statements from missionaries in Iraq. Although Christianity is still outlawed and everything must be done in secret, the mosques are less and less attended.

female Nashville Warbler
As with so many species, this bird’s name is not representative of where you are likely to see it.

A Lying tongue Prov. 6:16-19 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up...
As we move into fall (less light each day) and the political circus heats up and eventually the real truth comes out about corruption, our stress levels will go up. Most people are at the boiling point now. Many of us snap at the ones we love, and are on the verge of yelling at others for little...
