THE OTHERSIDE OF THE VOLCANO - Part 20: " Don't tell anyone, I didn't tell a living soul how terrified I was of not being enough, or getting enough, of anything desireable."

"Hit Song" (homily for July 17) We probably never think about it, but the earliest followers of Jesus had hymns they would sing when they gathered for the Eucharist, and today we have one of their favorites, entitled:   Jesus is the image . Jesus is the ima...

The Reverend John Smith: "Prayer is absolutely essential to our life with God."
Free Wi-Fi If I had to say what type of clothing I have the most of, it would be t-shirts.  I've bought a few, but most of the time, I get t-shirts as gifts or by donating or participating in an event.  One of my favorite t-shirts (recently I looked for it,...
