“Evil is a departure from the way things ought to be. But it could not be a departure from the way things ought to be unless there is a way things ought to be. If there is a way things ought to be, then there is a design plan for how things ought to be. And if there is such a design plan, then there is a designer.” R. Douglas Geivett”

“Kind of. White guy, maybe in his thirties, really big. Driving an old brown Toyota. The cops are after him now.”
Creston Mapes, Fear Has a Name

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

“Prayer adds an element of surprise to your life that is more fun than a surprise party or surprise gift or surprise romance. In fact, prayer turns life into a party, into a gift, into a romance.”
Mark Batterson, Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge
