Kevin Spacey Predicts the Future; War Crimes; Syria; Dangerous CFL’s; and much more

Weekend Links

Had an outstanding four days with two godly friends in Tennessee last week. One of God’s greatest gifts in life are friendships that endure for decades despite moves and geography and all the changes that life brings. This week another decades-long friend said goodbye to his wife who walked into the arms of Christ after a 6 year battle with cancer. The hope of the gospel is real. And the joy of knowing Christ through heartache is life changing. Pray for my friend (Kurt) and his four children as they grieve Dee’s loss even as they celebrate her life.
