November 9, 2012

For Lord’s Day, November 11, 2012 Dear Saints, Are you a “Shorter Catechism Boy or Girl”?  Are your children?  The email I am forwarding you (below, and the source of the pictures in this post) ties nicely in with last Lord’s Day evening’s sermon, “Disciple Your Children”, based on Deuteronomy 6:6-7.

September 24, 2012

For Lord’s Day, August 19, 2012 Dearly Beloved, Are you upside down or right side up?  I was thinking about this question today with the world and myself and the Church related to the following verse: And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, […]
