Why aren't you putting anything out about the SOMS football team?
I enjoy reading Al Early's Oldham Era articles each week. His article "Equal Opportunity Offender" was exceptionally good. I wholeheartedly agree with the need to pray/fast for our country...because we are indeed in deep trouble spiritually and morally. It was a good reminder for me to do so, and I will share this article with friends and family across the country, urging them to do likewise. Thank you for sharing this wisdom with readers. I can best summarize by saying Amen, Amen and Amen!!
