The message for last week was about taking time to rest.  It's been two and a half years since we started the Calvary Running Team.  We've had a great time, built many relationships, been honored to walk with several of you through difficult times, and along the way we...

I have a confession.  Last week I was in the grocery store and in a moment of weakness, I bought a box of Hostess Cupcakes.  Then I ate two of them.  And afterward, I felt terrible!  I felt terrible because what tasted good for a moment, soon made me nauseous.  I felt...

The Summer and Winter Olympic games are consistently the most watched television events in the United States.  We love to watch competition and we love it when athletes who represent the U.S. do well.  Everyone watches the medal count to see how the U.S. is doing compa...
