by Rev. Tom Shelton

GETTING ALONG WITH PRACTICALLY ANYBODY! We can get along with almost anybody if we will submit to the principles found in the Word of God.  Sometimes situations arise where there is genuine hostility.  It can even occur between good friends.  Problems can and do occur, even in the best of families.  It can help if […]
