What is the real meaning of Christmas?What is the real meaning of Christmas? With all of the hustle and bustle taking place, it is a good time to reflect on that question.

Pastor Knighton went on to say that a real friend does what he calls the 3 E's. Real friends educate, evaluate and elevate you.

Motivational Moments: Time to think of goals for next year

During this season so many of us go out of our way to bring happiness to others, be it through holiday get-togethers, giving presents to loved ones, or giving to others in need. But this season as you do all those wonderful things, I want you to remember to also think about yourself. All too often, we spend so much time making sure everyone else's needs are met, that we forget about our own needs.

Reflecting on the old year, preparing for the new one!Another year is coming to an end. This is a good time to reflect and to plan for the New Year. Although you may have left some things undone, it is not too late to begin the necessary work to get them done in the upcoming year. This requires quiet time and personal reflection.

Spend some time during this month to determine what you want to accomplish in the upcoming year.
