The Most Important Factor

By Pastor Rich Marshall of West Salem Four Square

I love us.

And by “us” I mean all of us. The whole big US!

I love all of us. In Christ, we are the live community He is constructing in love and forgiveness.

Senate Bill 494 – Update

OR Legislators Move to Allow Starving, Dehydrating the Mentally Ill

Oregon Right to Life  by David Kilada

Senate Bill 494, recently introduced in the Oregon Legislature, would allow the starving and dehydrating of patients who suffer from dementia or mental illness.

Our everyday choices

May 10, 2017 --

By Randy Alcorn

Have you ever seen a sink hole? Cars can be parked on a street day after day, and everything appears normal, then one day the asphalt caves in and cars disappear into a gigantic hole.

Everybody says, “That hole came out of nowhere.” But they’re wrong. The hole appears suddenly but the process that led to it has gone on for many years. The underground erosion was invisible, but it was there all along.
