The Accidental Evangelist

The Accidental Evangelist

Last month I took a plane trip to visit my family in Indiana. On the flight over, I decided to use the three-hour plane trip to catch up on my leadership training. One of my assignments was to read a few chapters in Lee Strobel’s The Case for Faith. No big deal, right? Quietly read […]

What would you do for a Klondike bar? The age old question. I love those commercials, they come up with some wacky; far fetched things that people would do in order to recieve a Klondike ice cream bar. It also brings me back a little while, when Larry Bird, and Michael Jordan did those McDonald’s […]
