Friday, March 15, 2002

We greet you in the strength and grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as we begin the Lenten Season, knowing that He will guide you in prayer, fasting, and worship unto Pascha, the great and glorious celebration of salvation and life.

A few weeks ago, I was among the many people travelling through the station that took notice of this exhibit. Read more...
