The Prediction

I love a good adventure story. I’m thinking of film sagas like the Indiana Jones movies or books like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia.

As you know a couple weeks back Sue and I enjoyed a week of vacation in Avon, NC—which is a remote little town on one of those barrier islands that make up the outer banks. One day we took a ferry to the next island, Okracoke. It’s near where the Monitor sank and where Blackbeard […]

Keep Love Pure

Series: Preacher: Date: October 12, 2014 Scripture Reference: Exodus 12:14

One of my favorite series of books has always been C. S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. How many of you have read them?

Honor My Parents
