Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

By Rev. James L. Snyder I am rather old-fashioned in some areas of my life, which I do not intend to upgrade to current standards. I do not believe in changing something unless it really needs to be changed. A crazy phobia is going around these days suggesting that if something is old, it must …

In a book entitled, “The Critical Journey,” Janet called the experience, simply, “The Wall.” My summary goes like this.   Many people begin their walk of faith, and everything …
