    I had a routine stress test on Wednesday, June 18 that my heart doctor schedules every two years. To my surprise, the following Monday I received a call saying that they saw an “abnormality” that could affect the lower part of my heart and I needed a heart catheterization to check it out.

    II Corinthians 5:20 says, “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”  Are you an ambassador for Christ?  If you call yourself a Christian, then you should be an ambassador for Christ.

    Posted on July 15, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    I’ve been saying I’ll write a column about puppy-dogs for quite some time now. I plan on doing that today, although I’m not sure it’s quite what everyone will expect… Pitbulls. The breed has become synonymous with violence, fear, and death. All too often, Americans hear horrific stories of how a “pitbull” committed some terrible, scary dog crime and associate it with the breed as a whole. My issue is
