The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.


All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.


Loss, fear, grief or guilt may be weighing someone down. Never give up. Keep up with the search of truth in yourself and you will be awarded with the sense of happiness and joy you are looking for.
