Peddlers or Preachers?


There are few things more annoying than someone trying to sell you something.  I deal with it all the time here in Philly.  I just try to go out for a walk or to grab something to eat, and I am met by people trying to sell me something.  It’s bad enough in everyday life, […]

He Chose Us


As I sit here on a rainy morning I can’t help but think about the grace of God.  It has been a constant on my mind lately.  My mind almost immediately goes to the question, why choose me?  Out of all the people that God could have chosen, why am I the one that he […]
