  • COLUMN: Jesus’ plan for your life is far better than the devil’s

    In the Gospel of John chapter 8, Jesus said to those listening to him: “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”  
    With these words, Jesus teaches us that truth is the means to freedom.  
    Truth is a very important part of Jesus’ teaching.  He called himself the truth when he said, [John 14:6] “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

  • COLUMN: Yearly opportunities to help our neighbors

    As we approach Thanksgiving, I for one have plenty for which to be thankful and I hope that all of you do, too.

    Luckily for them, there are plenty of opportunities to give and make someone else’s holiday season a little brighter.
    I wrote a column similar to this one last year, but decided to do so again because this year’s needs are no less than last year’s. In fact, they may be greater.
