dry cleaning shirts: gender discrimination

Just Learned Something

Posted 03-25-2012 at 06:51 PM by ItalianButterfly

Not Feeling Well Today...

[SIZE=4]Good Afternoon Folks!

Sunday School - March 25, 2012

Affirmation: As I seek Him, I pass through my knowledge into an encounter with the Almighty.

A true Christian is one who has encountered the Person of Jesus Christ and has been changed. - Wendell Smith

It is so easy for us to get involved in our other Christian experiences -- our praying and Bible study, our witnessing, our singing -- and miss the whole point of the entire thing! The Lord wants us to be with Him and behold His glory. - Jerry Coulter
