• No Greater Love - By JERRY NEWCOMBE Published on October 3, 2019 One of the greatest themes in art, literature, and sometimes even real life is when a person sacrifices his or her own life that someone else might live. In my worldview, all such acts point to the single greatest example of them all — Jesus Christ, who offered up His own life, that we might live, if you believe in Him. What got me thinking about this theme of self-sacrifice for others’ sake was a story reported a few days ago about a dog. Near Orlando, Florida, there…
