         your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting,
         and drunkenness, and cares of this life,
         and so that day come upon you unawares.
         Luke 21:34

         and women transformed by a spiritual birth which is from

             This is the voice of God we hear in this day of
         grace - the voice of the Savior calling wandering
         sinners home.


         Yours in Christ,
         Paul N. F.
