Hosea — Experiencing God’s Grace

Series: Preacher: Date: November 25, 2018 Scripture Reference: Hosea 1:1-9; 3:1-3

Do you ever grin—or wince—when you hear the names that some celebrities give to their newborns? They seem to have a real knack when it comes to “creative” baby naming. For example, do you remember when Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin made headlines after naming their daughter “Apple?” Before that, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis gave […]

I just finished reading a great book about a chapter in WWII history that I had not heard of before. Apparently, I’m not alone in that because the title of the book is, The Forgotten 500. It chronicles one of the greatest rescue and escape stories ever—but until recently it was virtually unknown—hardly anyone had […]
