The First Milestone

By Charlie Johnston I am very confident now that, whatever happens today (election day), it will be our first milestone in the renewal of the world. The sequence I have long spoken of when God wants to pull us back to Him after we have determinedly fallen away is to: 1) Reveal the depth of […]

And Justice for All

By Charlie Johnston I am so mad right now I could just spit. Word came out yesterday that Bishop Donald Hying of Madison, Wisconsin has disciplined Fr. Richard Heilman for being too political.

Today the Parliament must decide whether to revoke his assumption of […]

Keep On Trucking

By Charlie Johnston As I write this, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has declared a state of emergency to allow police to arrest and fine truckers who continue to stay parked in Ottawa, the Capitol City of Canada – and anywhere else in Canada. It also allows the state to seize the bank accounts or […]
