WHICH SOURCE ARE YOU DRINKING FROM?

WHICH SOURCE ARE YOU DRINKING FROM? I live in Scandinavia and I am lucky that I can open the water tub and drink the water from it. The taste of the water can vary from place to place, depending on the source of the water.

STAND FAST IN THE LIBERTY BY WHICH CHRIST HAS MADE US FREE! Why do we celebrate Christmas? We are celebrating in memory of the fact that Jesus Christ was born. Christmas is circling around the little baby in the crib, angles, shepherds, the history about Joseph and Mary. We read about the three wise men with wonderful gifts. Jesus was the Son of God. The entire humanity was separated from a direct contact with God because of the sin of Adam and Eve. God had talked to the prophets, but the ... (read more)
