When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and hit filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit … Continued

Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy the truth and do not sell it— wisdom, instruction and insight as well. The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him. May your father and … Continued

Welcome, May!

|

Every month has something wonderful to offer. For my money, though, there is nothing like the month of May. I worried a bit that moving to the high altitude of the Intermountain West might put a real damper on my favorite time of year, but happily (so far, at least) this hasn’t been the case. … Continued
