    Air in. Air out. Repeat. Nothing is more important than the way we bring life-sustaining oxygen into our bodies. As humans, we pretty much have the technique of breathing down.

In “Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art,” Nestor provides an interesting spiritual, cultural, and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe and why he believes we have been doing it wrong for a very long time.

  • Thought for the Week

    Pastor Earl Herr|Dec 29, 2022

When the arch angel calls, the trumpet sounds, and the dead in Christ rise to meet Christ and the living Church in the air, it will be a thrilling reunion/union. Christ will have purified His...
