Today is the first day for the 40 Days for Life campaign here in Helena and last night we had the kickoff event at our church. I was asked to open with a word of prayer and perhaps this prayer will be helpful for those who do not know what to pray concerning the murder […]

I recently preached on Mark 7:24-27 and in this portion of Scripture there are two miracles. The first miracle Jesus casts a demon out of a little girl because of the faith of her mother. This is mind blowing all by itself, but then Jesus does something you would not have expected. Jesus has been […]
