       It seems that this past month that I have had access to a "Plethora"   (OK, OK, OK   -- why not just say "many, many, many)  of Online resources unique to the management of finances at Christ-Centered Ministries.  Accordingly,  I have decided to use this entire JIMs JRNL edition to share them along with some of our own Online resources.
