Apr 26, 2020 – Elisha Freeman – Soon after the Civil War ended, Abraham Lincoln was once asked how he would treat the “rebellious” southerners. Lincoln responded, “I will treat them as if they never left.” Our lesson today focuses on the treatment of Jesus to sinners. How and why does He treat them the way He does?

03/29/2020 – Elisha Freeman – Our lives have been turned upside down with the Corona Virus. Many of us are fearful, worried, and frustrated. In Luke 1:26ff we will read of Mary, the mother of Jesus, have her world turned upside down. It is how the Angel Gabriel responds that catches our attention. It is here that we learn that we don’t have to be afraid, that nothing is impossible with God, and that despite what is happening we can still serve.
