I’ve lost track of how many times ...

Minister recounts path out of occult
Rob Radosti heard that Anton LaVey, author of “The Satanic Bible,” cried out to God on his death bed. Radosti has no way of verifying that story, but he can vouch for his own experience of crying out the name of Jesus, a name he had hated and avoided. Sharing his story with the people of Kodiak Christian Fellowship, Radosti said his conversion happened during a Creation Festival in Pennsylvania. He attended the ev...

After disembarking from Alaska Airlines at the Kodiak airport, I wanted to kiss the ground. It was a typically cloudy day, and my eyes no longer felt bombarded with relentless sunlight, as it felt like in Arizona. It was pleasantly dark at 7:30 a.m. and I looked forward to catching up on the sleep I didn’t get while waiting all night in the Anchorage airport. I had my bags in minutes, after exchanging pleasantries...
