Word for the Day: The First Rainbow

~ The history of the first rainbow ~ In what is one of the most ironic gestures of our time, the LGTB-alphabet groups have tried to appropriate the rainbow and make it all about them. In 1978, the rainbow flag representing homosexuality was first flown. Nevermind, that rainbow flags have been flown for other reasons throughout hstory. Now the rainbow flag has become almost synonymous with aphabet “rights.” The irony is that the rainbow was originally and remains today, a…

Word for the Day— Psalm 119:105

~ Word for the Day— Psalm 119:105 NLT ~ Your word is a lamp to guide my feet    and a light for my path.

Not since then has our country faced such upheaval as we…

Alveda King on COVID-19: A ‘Woke’ Word

Evangelist Alveda King, niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., submits the following thoughts on COVID-19: With all too many of the news and daily reports filled with fear and terror regarding COVID-19, I don’t know about you, but I believe that it’s time to exercise faith over fear.
