Father Jörgensen’s Questionings

A week ago, I was asked to baptize an infant later that morning. I have misgivings about it because nowhere in the Bible is there any such thing as infant baptism. Jesus wasn't baptized until He was thirty years old. As a baby, He was dedicated to the Lord. Last night I read every scripture …

Abeke’s Story

"I have something to tell you." "What is it? You know you can tell me anything. Nothing you say would change the way I feel about you." We sat facing each other and holding hands. Her fingers gripped mine tightly as she shared a chapter in her past with me. "You know that I was …

A Free Man

So if the Son makes you free, then you will be truly free - John 8:36 I didn't think that anybody cared about me. Why should they? I was a lowlife. I ran with the wrong crowd. Got into trouble all of the time. Gave my poor Mama a lot of grief. My Dad left …

Thinking of Her

She ran along the beach, laughing.  When she looked back and me and smiled, my heart stopped.  The sun hit her at just the right angle.  I envied it because it was caressing her face.  The hands holding the camcorder ached to hold her instead.  I forced myself to concentrate on my task.  I wanted …

"He hasn't asked me," Vonetta informed them curtly.  Was …
