Reflections On Songs of Praise

Listening to the Song of Creation

 

The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. {2} Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. {3} There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; {4} yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.

THREE AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALLS

The Cleveland Manager Eric Wedge was born and raised in Fort Wayne. He came up through Fort Wayne's youth baseball programs and played for Northrup High School when they won the Indiana High School Championship. He played college ball at Wichita State and four years in the Major Leagues as a catcher.

I think catchers make the best managers: Paul Richards, Connie Mack, Mickey Cochrane, Al Lopez, Joe Torre, and Bob Coleman in the...

Since the dawn of the horror movie, one monster has outlived all the rest. One creature has terrified more people that Godzilla, The Creature, and Frankenstein combined. His name is Dracula, and just one man can kill him—Van Helsing.

Van Helsing tells the story of its title character, played by Hugh Jackman (X-Men), a man who cannot remember his past and has been hired by a secret society within the church to slay evil creatures such as Mr. Hyde and the Wolfman. Van Helsing is sent to...
