Dear Friends, Each person is of extreme value and worth to God. There are no inferior human beings, for we are all His daughters and sons. Our texts today challenge us that there are people who cannot speak up, who cannot protect themselves, who are not protected. The Word of God challenges us to receive…

An undercover operation had revealed that baggage handlers at that airport had been going through baggage that had been entrusted to their care and were stealing items out of the baggage. People were rightfully outraged. When…

Dear Friends, My heart is heavy because of the restlessness, the sad struggle that plays out before me every day. So many people are the victims of rootless poverty that seems endless. As I was preparing this sermon I met a man who said he had just been wandering around for days. He hasn’t slept…
