Stuart has a history of depression but recently tapered off her medication, they said.

Religion: The Four Gospels

March 10, 2015

By JAMES REINEBACH

Christianity is the cheerful message of the Gospel and it brings joy and peace from heaven to earth. The English word gospel, comes from a blend of older English words gode and spel, pronounced gospel, meaning "good story" (Grk= evangel). The New Testament opens with this Good News, the Gospel...the authentic record of the history of all histories, the glad tidings of salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
