Post-Flood Services

God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good. Many times, this is easier said than believed, but I can tell you that we as a church believe it!

It is no coincidence that God had ordained that I would be studying 1 P...

Psalm 31: A Confident Lament

Confident lament. That is the phrase that I use to describe this Psalm. Those two words seem almost contradictory, but they perfectly portray the psalmist's attitude.
