  • Christians are not limited to just three free sins

    I’m talking about Bible teacher, author and Christian radio personality Steve Brown’s new book, “Three Free Sins,” subtitled, “God’s Not Mad at You.”
    The title comes from Steve’s former call-in radio program where he gave callers three free sins — six if they called on a cell phone.

    Gardeners get anxious this time of the year. Warm one day, cold the next, the sun coaxes open a little patch of crocus by the path or we catch sight of an old landscape filled with waves of blooming white snow drops.  
    This year, the show is sure to come early and the forsythia are not the first to bloom, despite this oft cited sign of spring. There are other early bloomers to keep us occupied until spring truly arrives.
