Touchdown Jesus

Imagine there’s no heaven…or Super Bowl

Imagine there’s no heaven. It’s easy if you try. Have you ever? No hell below us…above us only sky. Imagine no heaven or hell, and no religion too. John Lennon said it’s not… Continue reading

Fear not? It all depends.

What’s going on when people who needn’t fear death…do, and those who should fear it…don’t? A godly woman whose cancer has returned with a vengeance grips the rails of her hospital bed as… Continue reading
