Perspective: Only a beginning

As I write this article, I am on a trip to East Asia. The last sermon and invitation at Falls Creek Youth Weeks will have been concluded by the time this article is published.

Perspective: Thoughts on immigration

Immigration is on the mind of nearly everyone. Recent news reports regarding children crossing the border and being “warehoused” until they can be processed have spotlighted the huge problem we face in our country regarding illegal immigrants of all ages.
