Thoughts on Memorial Day

The Last Memorial Day by Rev. Paul J. Bern This weekend we are all celebrating the 2016 Memorial Day holiday.

Protecting Oneself With the Full Armor of God [Ephesians chapter 6] Today we will be finishing up the book of Ephesians by studying chapter six, the final chapter in this particular letter from the apostle Paul.
