By Pastor Chris Blythe | Feb 1, 2019 | Comments Off on “Hind Sight…Blurred Vision”

There is an old saying, “Hindsight 20/20.” Hindsight is defined as, “understanding of a situation or event only after it has happened or developed.” At 45 years old, it is safe to say I have certainly have many occurrences of hindsight. Should’ve…could’ve…would’ve as they say. However, even though we have hindsight, what good does it…

“Make Sure of Your Footing”

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Feb 1, 2019 | Comments Off on “Make Sure of Your Footing”

The recent weather has stirred a thought within me this evening, regarding our footing.

Friendship is a tender thing.
