Steve Mass - Associate Worship Pastor This last week I got to try out surfing for the first time. I used to snowboard and skateboard a lot so I figured it would be somewhat simple to pick up. A wave comes, you stand up, and ride it like a snowboard. Simple, right? Wrong. It was nothing like skating or surfing. There are so many different variables like being in the correct spot where the waves break, catching the wave at the right time, and positioning your feet correctly to name few.

Carter was interviewing to be a submarine captain and every candidate had to interview with Rickover in order to become a captain. At the end of the interview, Rickover asked Carter how he did at the naval Academy. Carter proudly stated he finished 59 out of 820, fully expecting Rickover to b... Read More...
