Pastors Should Not Be Muzzled!

It seems that almost every day my Google Alert for "Jim Garlow" reports yet another article from a secular source taking a potshot at Jim for his stand on issues like religious freedom, same-sex marriage, and pro-life concerns.  Jim's under fire just about every day, yet he is out there like gangbusters with no intention of backing off.  As a pastor and a broadcaster, he's literally on the front lines.

Janet-Mefferd-Today

For anything we set out to do, having the right tools is as important as knowing what to do with them.  An event last weekend reminded me of this fact ... I was snorkeling for the first time since last July.  I'm not a pro by any means; and that fact, compounded with zero practice since last yearmade for an interesting undertaking.

In a rush to get into the water, I neglected to fasten my gear as tightly as was (apparently!) necessary.  Not two minutes into the escapade, an inconsiderate wave hijacked one of my fins.  Frantically, I searched ...
