A La Carte (March 12)

We are in unfamiliar and unprecedented times, aren’t we? As we hear growing news of lockdowns, quarantines, travel bans, and cancelations, isn’t it good to know that our God is sovereign? As R.C.

A La Carte (March 6)

Yesterday my son texted Aileen to ask, “How do so many people know it’s my birthday?” So thanks to all those who saw him down at SBTS and said “happy birthday.” Also, I suppose this is proof that he doesn’t read my site!
