Shhh!

Posted by Pat Cooper on

“For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God” — Acts 20:27 When the apostle Paul made that statement to the Ephesian elders, do you think sex talk may have been included in the package? That is, instruction concerning God’s design for...

I Need My Church, And You Need Yours

Lest We Forget

Posted by Pat Cooper on

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. — Hebrews 10:23 How quickly we forget what God has said. Before the disciples took Jesus and boarded the boat shoving off for the Gerasenes (see Mark 4:35–41), the Master had told them...

Renew Your Minds

Posted by Pat Cooper on
