My dear family,“Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are” (Romans 12:3). NLT.This is a perfect rule to live by because pride is at the root of our downfall.

April 2024

Dear family,As we reflect on the solemn observances of Lent and the Passion Week, we are reminded of the profound journey we have undertaken together.
