This Sunday | Bearing One Another's Burdens

Have you ever considered how much emphasis the Bible places not only our vertical relationship with God, but also our horizontal relationships with one another?

Certain Comfort for Uncertain Times

Is it just me or is there an almost tangible sense of uncertainty out there? Many have the sense that our world is changing not only in profound ways, but also at a very hectic pace. It can be very disorienting, leaving people feeling a variety of things - from anger to apathy, from adrenaline to angst.  I read yesterday that there is now one ISIS attack in Euro...
