If I Have Not Love

If I Have Not Love

Every now and then, something comes up in one of my various social circles that makes me think about how we as Christians should behave. Recently, in one of my groups, there has been some really intense discussion on several different topics, from writing to politics to theology and more. And of course, any time […]

The Dreaded D Word

The Dreaded D Word

That dreaded “D” word. No, I don’t mean Democrat or Donald. You people have a one-track mind. Eye roll. I also don’t mean the “D” word as in taking a synonym for condemnation and adding “it” to the end either.

It’s Heating Up Out There

Storms on the East Coast, fires in Colorado, record high temperatures all over the country–what in the world is going on out there?
