A Counterintuitive Christmas

The first time I heard Steve Brown speakwas about 28 years ago at a "Praise Gathering " in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He'a one os the finest speakers that I know

It's almost christmas now and I believe Steve can tell you somethings about Christmastmas that you possibly have never heard.If you have 35 minutes or so give it a listen.  It may change your thoughts about Christmas, and God.

Twins by johnlackerman

I saw this young lady at my clinic in Prospere on Monday. I addressed the baby's physical problem, a minor cold. Then the mother told me that the baby boy was a twin, He had a sister, She continued telling me that she had gone to the Hospital in Tabar and delivered a very healthy set of twins. Not long after the delievery a young police came into the room, picked up the infant girl and simply stole the baby from this young mother.
My pastor told me that this used to happen frequently. It seems that the police would get a pretty healthy price to someone who wanted a new baby. This lady had no person in power to plede her case to. I wonder if you ever get over this kind of treatment.
