The Bible is a powerful tool (Jer. 23:29). It is a warrior’s weapon (Eph. 6:17; II Cor. 10:3-5)! Unfortunately, the Bible is something that is taken for granted by many in our society. It is treated by some as a book of myths and legends, as a magic charm, and other things.
As I write to you, we’ve just completed the first week of the 2013 General Assembly Session. We’ll take a break for three weeks for everyone from newly-elected members, newly-elected leaders as well as committee chairs to get settled in. We’ll reconvene February 5 for the remaining 26 days of s

Our new year, 2013, still sounds odd to many of us. It’s the first “13” most of us have entered. My grandparents lived in 1913: my grandfather was 12, and my grandmother was nine. But, that year wasn’t a part of any of their stories. A hundred years ago, things were not like today.
