  • Unexpected death

    This morning, a middle aged man in my church died of alcohol poisoning. He had been my Sunday School teacher when I was a teenager, but I had no idea he had been struggling with alcohol for so long.

    He leaves two high school-age girls without a parent, because his wife died of cancer several years ago. I'm very concerned for both of them.
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
