  • Let’s sing anyway

    January 11 2019 by Chuck Lawless | with 0 comments

    I’ve been there, and you likely have as well. You’ve never heard the song your church is singing or you’ve heard it but don’t like it. The temptation is to silently mimic the words or not sing at all.   But here...

    January 4 2019 by Mark Snowden | with 0 comments
