Tim Calcara

A Christmas witness

The following story is true and just came to me from one of my dear brothers in Christ. It’s truly a solemn reminder of the importance of being willing at all times to share our faith, regardless of the outcome.

Where the streets have no name

Dedicated to all those who miss one “who has gone before us.” I’ve listened to this song a thousand times. It is truly one of my favorite anthems of all time.
