  • The danger of not doing

Both are important to our growth as believers, but James tells us that there is a danger that we must be aware of and avoid when we encounter God’s Word.

    Faith Kutnicki has been a professor since 1975, and has no plans of stopping anytime soon.

    Since House and Senate leaders announced Thursday morning that budget talks had stalled, there have understandably been many questions from the public about what happened – and what is likely to happen next.
