  • An Encounter By Divine Appointment by Jan Davis

    The young woman sat alone in the booth, lost in her private world of hopelessness, unaware of the stares of the other customers. A full cup of untouched, with piles of wadded napkins next to her on the bench, she attempted to hold back yet another onslaught of tears. Jan waited in line to place her order and tried not to look as her thoughts traveled back earlier in the day and rested on her morning devotion. Throughout the gospels, stories abound of lives transformed when people encountered Jes…

  • Lamenting Lasts and Giving Thanks by Allyn Schuyler

    I woke this morning to celebrate my birthday and, instead, began my day lamenting all the “lasts” I find myself experiencing these days. This might sound like I’m a real “glass half empty” kind of person, but that’s not at all the case.

  • What's Happening - August 2020 by Betty J. Slade

    I am always amazed how God works and continues to work in our WCCWN group. Our writings have become a strong influence throughout our community. Five months of being shut-in, our weekly meetings have continued on ZOOM. As we reconvened at the Crossroad Church, we are able to include all of our out-of-town guests and members. On July 13th, we had 14 attend in person and 9 online. His purpose has come to fruition when we stepped out of our normal routine and included ZOOM meetings. This move has p…
