Just Say No (Updated)

By Charlie Johnston Arghhh! I was supposed to note yesterday that I will give my last presentation of the spring this Sunday, April 10. It will be in the St. Louis area. Actually, it will be in downtown Belleville, Illinois – where I lived for five years. That will give me a chance to visit […]

Just Say No

By Charlie Johnston We have just started our Easter quarterly fundraising appeal. Yeah, I know, I hate these things, too.

Darkness and Light

By Charlie Johnston The first thing to understand is that God wins. There is no doubt whatsoever about that. That being the case, there is only one question that is relevant in each of our lives. It is not whether or not the Church will survive and what we must do to save it. Nor […]
