Sundays Bible Quote
14. If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. — 2 Chronicles 7:14
Billy Graham Evangelistic Association: God is Love
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love ... — Jeremiah 31:3
As I read the Bible, I find love to be the supreme and dominant attribute of God. The promises of God’s love and forgiveness are as real, as sure, as positive, as human words can make them. But the total beauty of the ocean cannot be understood until it is seen, and it is the same with God’s love. Until you actually experience it, until you actually possess it, no one can describe its wonders to you.
Never question God’s great love, for it is as unchangeable a part of God as His holiness. Were it not for the love of God, none of us wou>

Santa Fe Indian School didn't quit, despite losing season finale, 49-0 in District 2-5
Horsemen took a quick 28-0 lead, but the Braves did put together a long drive in the fourth quarter that fell short
By ARNIE LESHIN
It was the season finale, a time for the home fans to cheer on their Santa Fe Indian School football team.
It was midway through the fourth quarter and the Braves were on the go, putting together their best offense of the Thursday night District 2-5/4A game against their visiting neighbors from St. Michael’s.
With starting quarterback Alec Lee sidelined with an injury, first-year head coach Carl Vigil alternated sophomore Matthew Mo>

St. Michaels visits neighbor Santa Fe Indian School in District 2/5-4A football Thursday night
Indian School has not defeated St. Michael’s since 1926
By ARNIE LESHIN
Like the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, the Santa Fe Indian School football team has a draught of its own.
Not as advertized of course as the World Series opponents, but the last time the Braves defeated St. Michael’s was back in 1926. They were then the United States Indian School and the Horsemen were the Micks, whose home field was the only one in the area, and was on the old campus next to the San Miguel Mission.
Since that time, when the teams split while playing >

Underdog St. Michael’s played game of the year, undefeated Las Vegas coming out on top, 34-25
Cardinal fans put a dent in a hard-playing game with nasty, uncalled for vibes that brought security, police
By ARNIE LESHIN
It was probably more than visiting Las Vegas Robertson had expected, especially junior quarterback Arjay Ortiz.
Usually a smash mouth run team that throws the ball only when needed, the undefeated Cardinals saw St. Michael’s begin the game’s first offensive series with 14 plays, 11 along the ground, and let the clock run down to 5:22.3 before losing the ball on downs at the Robertson 18.

Sunday's Bible Quote
4. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. —Deuteronomy 6:4-9
"Oh, I Tried Christianity, and It Didn't Work for Me!" And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. —Philippians 1:6
So, you say you tried Christianity and it didn't work for you?
My reply: Nonsense!
Let me ask you these questions:
1. After you were "converted," did you begin to study and memorize Scripture? Psalm 119:11 (NKJV) says, "Your word have I hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You." Paul exhorts us in 2 Timothy 2:15 (AMP), "Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved."
2. Did you >
A Lesson in Civility
