Last week we observed that another segment of our community is so wrapped up in the pleasurable experiences, the thrills and chills of this life, they just can't schedule God in!

Saved, But Why?
by Stuart Briscoe
I'd like to ask a personal favor while we're in this decision time. I'd like to ask you not to take an early exit. Not to try to beat the traffic. Because what's going to be happening here, in just the next few moments, is a lot more important than the five minutes you'll gain trying to get out of this ..
