Redeeming the time

"Welcome to 2010!" said a sign I recently saw. As I glanced at it, something registered in my mind. We have entered the next decade of the "new millennium."

Remember your role

So often these days we hear about teamwork and partnership. God said in Genesis that it is not good for man to be alone. In Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, we find some reasons for this.

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."
