What's a penny worth?

The Salvation Army rolled out card-swipeable red kettle stands and last Christmas started taking kettle donations by way of mobile devices.

We just don't need pennies anymore.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
