My World Series …

“I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 3:14) The “Fall Classic” is here and it should be a good one. Every little boy who played “whiffle ball” in the yard and then went on to play in ‘Little League’ baseball has dreamed of making […]
