Reaction to the NO vote on weed.

Prayer, a time of pure awesomeness

5 ways to evangelize when you are not an “Evangelist.”

Evangelism is a bit of a scary word. It conjures up visions of going door to door, awkwardly interjecting “Baby Jesus” into every conversation. All of those things are scary, I agree. So, maybe it’s time to stop using that word, “evangelize.” The word evangelize is not in the...
