It is Christmas time in the city and the Cove. It seems like each year the season begins sooner. If the proper focus is on the Christmas holiday it is not necessarily a bad thing that we think of...

"I want it now!" You may or may not have said that statement aloud at some point. But you probably thought it; maybe many times. We live in a world where we want things conveniently and quickly. The...

If I were to ask the average Christian why they pray, I may get answers like...prayer changes things and the Bible tells us we should. People can probably quote a number of prayer-related verses....
