I took an afternoon stroll to the mailbox. While walking back to the house thumbing through the envelopes of junk mail and bills, I came across a plain white envelope addressed to me. The return address took me by surprise. Written beside the name of the sender was a prison number.

School drop-off is routine for most parents. Whether drop-off is at the bus stop or in the car line, parents hand their treasured blessings off to adults that may or may not have their child’s best interest at heart. When the bell rings, do you know what your children are being exposed to? Sadly, most parents never give it a second thought.
The implosion of America does not lie at the feet of the wicked, but at the heart of the Church. For decades we’ve ignored our Christian responsibility to “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6) and have allowed the secularists to train them. The number of children who have never stepped foot in a church or even heard the name of Jesus, except in vain, is continuing to increase. Even those who’ve grown up in the church are leaving the faith at alarming rates. Why do you think this is happening?

In the summer of 2020, I started watching ABC’s Once Upon a Time on Netflix. Given that I’ve always loved fairy tales and the simple life lessons gleaned from them, a series based on familiar characters with happy endings seemed like a good way to escape for an hour or two.
However, between the pages of t...

FOR MANY PEOPLE, FORGIVENESS IS A PHENOMENON.
A real mystery. It boggles the human mind. Where does one find the strength to offer such a gift of grace to another human being?
The world watched in awe when forgiveness poured from the hearts of nine parishioners impacted by the...
On August 21, 2017, my hometown of Columbia, SC was abuzz with the Total Eclipse Event. The last one on record was 99 years ago, so this once-in-a-life-time event was a pretty big deal, not only in South Carolina, but also across the globe. Thousands of people poured into our city and around our state to see it firsthand. Around 8100 people filled the Riverbanks Zoo area alone, and thousands more were uptown, downtown and all around town.
