    It won’t be long before those attending our afternoon programs will be wearing coats and mufflers.

  • A year or so ago, a question was posed to me that really stuck with me and has made me think. It’s a question that is so simple, but to this day I think about it and process it regularly. This is the question: “Would you describe yourself as totally, head-over-heels in love with Jesus?”

  • When Ed Taylor Jr. recently stepped into the shoes of the retiring chief, Merle Adermann, the “fit” was not exact, but as Taylor had been first assistant chief for several years, he had an idea of what the “walk” in those shoes would be like.
