Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray you have had a good week.

I know everyone is getting ready for Halloween, but I am looking forward to Monday, October 31, 2016, for a very different reason.

I was honored to be a part of this ministry, and as I prepared to write this week’s letter, I stumbled on the first one I wrote in June, 2015. We happened to be focusing on the same story we read last Sunday, the parable of the mustard seed. I love how a year later,…

We Have All We Need
