Did you read Charlie Warners article in the paper last week and how true it is.

Those days everything tasted good, and we had never heard of the word “pop” or “fast-foods.”

It is not enough to own a Bible;
We must read it.
It is not enough to read it,
We must let it speak to us.
It is not enough to let it speak to us,

We must pray and live it.
