Weekend Links

washington_il-white-fullThe sun is shining and the people of Washington have a good day for all the help that is arriving to begin the process of putting their material and emotional lives back together. We have teams of people going from our church as do many other churches in the area. It is a great joy to see the body of Christ not only involved in the cleanup but leading in the cleanup. The links below are a weekly round up of interesting and helpful links. Pray for those cleaning up in the towns affected by the tornadoes of last week. Enjoy.
