In Memory

During Memorial Day weekend, small tombstone-shaped markers line 8th Avenue in Gainesville, Florida, in remembrance of our soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Each year there are more, until this year they not only stretch for more than a mile, but are now on both sides of the street.

May they rest in peace, and may God have mercy on us all.

God Loves Everyone

This photo was taken at a rally held in response to local demonstrations by members of an out-of-town church who seem to believe that God hates nearly everyone except themselves. This "Christian" church even tries to explain away John 3:16:
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life."
Participants in the rally proclaimed the truth of God's love for the whole world.
