Old Wives Tales, Hoot Owl's & Sleepless Nights
I heard an old wives tale that if a hoot owl hooted outside your bedroom window three nights in a row you were going to die, or you were going to lose someone you love. Well, a hoot owl has been outside my window for about four weeks and I’m still alive and kicking!

Loving one another in the name of Christ is the foundational bedrock of all Christian good news. We have no hope of achieving a satisfactory Christian life if we chose to throw out love. To love someone in the Spirit of Christ is to see them through the eyes of God who made them. They have souls worthy of our respect, kindness and hope.
