I had this thought today reflecting on the pro-life march that happened earlier: that the pro-life movement is connected or at least similar to the temperance movement in American history and that it…Continue
So I don't know if you've noticed, but there's been no Sunday School from Nelson for 3 weeks! It's something I looked forward to every Sunday. I figured that if I did, some one else probably did,…Continue
