IRS Debacle Goes from Bad to Worse

As recently as last Friday, when this explosive IRS story first broke, we were told by  the IRS official in charge of tax exemptions for organizations that the improper methods employed within her division were executed by “low level workers” in Cincinnati who weren’t motivated by “political bias,” and impacted roughly 75 organizations?  Now we already know that is “wrong, wrong and wrong.” 

This is a DISASTER that we can only hope and pray they will completely get to the bottom of.

The NBA’s Jason Collins created quite a stir this week by becoming the first active player in one of the four major American team sports to admit he’s a homosexual. He also says he’s a Christian, which ESPN NBA reporter Chris Broussard got into some hot water for questioning.

It’s the only story that delivers on its promise, though not on our timetable, to make us happy with a happiness that cannot be lost.”
So, what follows is Crabb’s presentation of God’s story, as best and brief as he can, in sixty-six short paragraphs. In order to showcase the story’s ear-opening realism and heart-awakening romance, he tells the story as if God Himself is the narrator and tlaking directly to who He knows is listening.

Do It Anyway

In his book, “Freedom From Fear: Overcoming Worry & Anxiety,” Neil Anderson says “…nobody can keep you from being the person God has called you to be.”  He says, “It’s normal to feel the fear but step out anyway as the following poem suggests:
