For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body–whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free–and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.1 Corinthians 12:13
Though it may look like the printer was running out of ink it is really a great reminder that God through Christ calls us to be one. God has given all of mankind salvation as a gift, and we have the opportunity to partake together without division.~ Pastor Bob Barnett

Fight Like a Girl: The Power of Being a Womenby Lisa Bevere
Today’s twisted pictures of gender roles create confusion over how a woman should define herself. Women and men are encouraged to move closer to center and away from the traits that distinguish male from female. How can women feel good about themselves when society is constantly dictating what they can and should be? In FIGHT LIKE A GIRL, Lisa Bevere exhorts us to embrace the differences between sexes. Her goal is to encourage women to celebrate the unique aspects of femininity. Instead of trying to adopt ill-fitting character traits, women should see themselves as designed and valued by God and savor their femininity as their strength, not a flaw.
