  • Satan's rant and the God of Heaven by Jan Davis

    "You think you won the war. Big mistake. I'll make you regret the day you created me." Satan ranted to no one in particular while the earth trembled beneath his feet. To his surprise, only one-third of the angelic host bought into his deception. He rallied his troops around him. "We are a vast number and possess great power and skill. Back me, and together we will realize the demise of God's empire." The great deceiver slipped into the Garden of Eden and turned his attention to God's other handi…

  • The residue in my cup by Jan Davis

  • What are we seeking on New Year's Eve? by Lynn Moffett

    On New Year's Eve, the weather forced me to cancel my plans for a night of games with family. As I sat alone, I wondered how many groups of people around the world usher in the new year with a celebration. One thought led to another. Why is the new year such a big deal? What are we seeking? I went online and found an extensive list of different celebrations. In every country, people do something, not always the same day the new year lands on our calendar, but customs do exist. From there, I sear…
