Shoes play a big part of a cross country race
Shoes are just not shoes to cross country runners; they are the sole piece of equipment that they use. That is why Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar is always surprised to see runners show up in just about anything covering their feet. “We want kids in a decent shoe that is designed for running,” Dunbar said. “Kids show up in skateboarder shoes, basketball shoes and all kinds of dress shoes — we want them to get in a pai...

Wes Stafford, pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church, quotes that scripture with personal insight. He’s been in Timothy’s sandals, providing spiritual guidance to people who, by and large, were older than he. But he was confident that God had led him into a leadership position in the first plac...
