    If you took an inventory of your thoughts today, how many do you think would negative and how many would be positive?

    From the cover story: "I was reading about a small Baptist Church in a rural town that caught fire one night and burned to the ground. While the church was burning many townspeople stood around watching it burn. As the pastor drove up, he noticed a man in the crowd that had not been in church in years.
