    The Butterfly People in Joplin, Missouri

    in Spirituality

    Almost three years after the Joplin, Missouri tornado we took a trip back to see how God is the 'God of Every City.'   On the corner of 15th and Main street is a painted mural called "Butterfly Effect: Dreams Take Flight".  The butterflies in the mural represent the many children who shared stories of angels of butterfly people who helped them during the tragic tornado in May 2011. 


    God's Word is clear that Angels are real. In Hebrews 1:7 it says "Regarding the angels, he says, "He sends his angels like the winds, his servants like flames of fire."


    Listen in as we share the excitement of Angels and how God continues to use Angels to minister in times of need.

    King of Rags by Eric Bronson (Hx of Scott Joplin)

    in Marketing

    King of Rags - Book Genre: Historical Fiction
    Publisher: Neverland Publishing
    Release Date: May, 2013

    Book Description:
    King of Rags follows the life of Scott Joplin and his fellow ragtime musicians as they frantically transform the seedy and segregated underbelly of comedians, conmen and prostitutes who called America’s most vibrant cities home. Inspired by Booker T. Washington and the Dahomeyan defeat in West Africa, Joplin was ignored by the masses for writing the music of Civil Rights fifty years before America was ready to listen.
