Victory News – January 19, 2018

Dear friends, Frozen in time. This past week the South received a heavy dose of snow and cold. Schools were closed. Flights were cancelled. Businesses were closed. Roads were shut down.

Celebrating God’s Generosity

Dear friends, How does your house look? Wrapping paper anywhere? Cookie crumbs decorating your counter-top or even your couch? Pine needles, real or fake, sticking up out of the carpet or like sprinkles on your floor? New toys and new gadgets, here, there, and everywhere? Garbage overflowing?

Extraordinary God

Dear Friends, “In those days… everyone did as they saw fit.” Sounds like a culture where people maintain that their own unlimited personal autonomy is the only virtue there is.
