The Need for Prayer

In answer to prayer, our church is starting a prayer team that will be up front at the end of each service to pray with people who need prayer for various reasons. It’s a great step and I’m glad to see we had almost 20 volunteers! We’ll serve every other month, after...

Another song has been put up on sheetmusicplus.com! I’ve certainly been having fun writing them, but so glad to have my musical friend in Boston to turn them into sheet music. I had thought to retire at my ripe old age, but I guess for a writer, we never really...
