At that point, I was skeptical that we’d be able to raise the funds to make even a small dent in such an overwhelming need, and I told one of my friends that I would be surprised if we could donate provi...Keep Reading
In his last devotion before his 12-week sabbatical, the Rev. Marc Boutan reflects on the comforting words of John 14:2: "In my Father's house are many rooms ... I am going to prepare a place for you."
