God is the answer.

by Ryan Brenneman

“Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right, 6 for there is a time and a way for everything, even when a person is in trouble. 7 Indeed, how can people avoid what they don’t know is going to happen?” (Ecclesiastes 8:5b-7) This is what we need […]

A white male mercilessly took the lives of African American people, demonstrating that the apparent reality being […]
