A Wasted Life? (by Len Winneroski)
“God has picked out people who are laughable, and through them He is confounding those who think they are high and mighty.

Cockroaches and Butterflies (by Len Winneroski)
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
