Where Angels Fear to Tread

This morning, a local bible study group started the book of Hebrews. One in the group described the opening passages as having the same style as an ancient Greek tragedy.

A Blow to the Heart

Saturday before last I joined my friend at a local car dealership to help with a toy drive. This wasn’t a typical, seasonal toy drive. It was to restore Christmas for the children and the parents whose houses were severely damaged or destroyed by the nine post-Christmas tornados in the Garland/Rowlett area. Imagine, as a […]
