  • Nicole and Bruce Kosch had it all: a love that had blossomed since their high school days in Port Charlotte, good educations, great jobs, an adventure that took them to Wisconsin for a year and a warm, comfortable home in Morriston.

    The time was right to add to their number and so they began preparations to welcome a third into their fold.

    But after a year of unsuccessful attempts to conceive, the couple sought medical advice and testing.

    Bruce was up first, because male testing is less invasive.

  • James 4:1-12
    In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, you will find the names of two ladies who could not get along with each other, Euodia and Syntyche (or, as it has been rendered, Odius and Soontouchy).
    They obviously had trouble working together. Then and now, the church is too often described in this little jingle:
    To dwell above with saints we love,
    O that will be sure glory.
    But to dwell below with saints we know,    
    Well, that’s another story!1
