There was a time in America where the church (Its people, its truth.) stood at the forefront of much that went on in community after community.

My Brother The Runner
Today my brother completed his second marathon. This was the Boston Marathon 2014. I am extremely proud of my little brother David!
His time 5:43:42.

He subsequently had surgery for a shoulder injury and then a knee that needed healing. He has beat those all. And he decided to run! Continue reading My Brother, The Runner – Boston Marathon 2014
