              by Wayne Brewer

                            Since the beginning the family has proven to be the strength or the weakness of a culture, society, nation, community, and even a congregation of the Lord’s church, depending upon if the family goes with God or against him.

                    I WILL SET A PLUMBLINE

                    by Wayne Brewer
