Technology: A 14-year old girl is suing MySpace.com for $30 million after a man she met online through that service sexually assaulted her. Fox says that she claims “it does not take sufficient steps to protect underage members.” How about suing her parents for not providing adequate supervision?

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
