I was anxious to receive my copy of Hank Hanegraaff's newest book, Has God Spoken?, mostly because I really enjoyed two of his other books, The Prayer of Jesus [an answer to that whole Prayer of Jabez thing, which was nothing more than materialism with a pseudo-spiritual sugarcoating, that Bruce Wilkinson unleashed upon the Church] and Resurrection…Continue

Nestled quietly, almost out-of-site among Ragwort flowers – a little Pacific Tree Frog went undetected by most of our group. His green colored…Continue
Our church is doing a series on doctrine, and the pastor gave one of the most moving sermons I have ever heard. So, rather than pontificate and theorize on my own, I'm merely posting his sermon. Do yourselves a favor and set aside an hour to listen to it; it's worth it.

Venturing through the “jungle” of grasses and trees on the lower Hummocks Trail, we made another startling discovery – a TIGER devouring its prey! Just inches off the trail, this tiger paid us no mind and continued munching on its lunch.
