Elvis’ Bible

Elvis Presley's bible sold at a U.K. auction last week for a prodigious $94,600. The Bible was given to Elvis on his first Christmas at Graceland in 1957.

Burnham: Losing your worship

Down we go scrambling on our hands and knees (with a flashlight or broom handle) in search of that lost item. Oh, I wish God's people would go in search of their worship that way.

You may say, "My worship isn't lost, I go to church." But that's the point. So many have lost their worship and don't even realize it. We go to church ...
