Luke's Word for the Week

In the midst of a chaotic world with CNN and Fox News constantly filling our minds with pointless ramblings, we need to hear about something good. In the midst of entering what some folks are calling a "post Christian culture" we need to hear something good.
What's the good we need to hear? It's Jesus. It's always been Jesus. As the body of Christ we must be talking about Jesus more than any other subject we talk about. In fact, anything we talk about more than Jesus would certainly be considered idolatry.
