The answer to his three-letter question will take some time to answer.
First, we live in the 21st century and everything is going digital if it hasn’t already done so. I own a wrist watch that allows me to make and answer calls. It just makes sense to throw a “hook” into the digital waters.

In just a few weeks, we will be celebrating Easter. This is the “High and Holy Day” for Christians around the world. Most of the world today has at least a limited understanding who Jesus Christ is. Some religions have included Him in their list of prophets. Some even acknowledge that He is a god. Many notable people have commented on Jesus’ place as the most famous,…
I use many different Bible translations while preparing sermons. I even use translations I don’t particularly like, but it helps me to be aware of the many different translations that the congregation may be using. One year while preparing for an Easter sermon,I looked was moved by the NLT translation for Isaiah 53. The King James Version says: “But he was…
