Uh, somethin’ ain’t workin’ here…..

Remember these?       W.W.J.D. – what would Jesus do? You could find these everywhere…..bracelets, necklaces, pins…..everywhere. It’s kind of funny really, how could we ever really know what Jesus would do?  Wouldn’t you think that He would have favored the older brother (Prodigal Son) who obeyed and stayed faithful to his father?  OrContinue reading “Uh, somethin’ ain’t workin’ here…..”
