Sono Harris Is With Jesus – Pray for the Harris family. “Today, July 4, 2010, at approximately 11pm, our dear mother, Sono Sato Harris, passed away and went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ. It was an entirely peaceful parting. Our family is grieving, and yet grieving as those who have hope because of Jesus’ death and resurrection for us. Goodnight, Mama.”

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it.
