Bookends

You “old timers” probably remember the “mandatory” books that students were expected to read during their young adolescent school years.

What You Celebrate Is What You Replicate

I’ve read books, blogs, articles, tweets and Facebook posts. I’ve kept up with the bestsellers book list, listened to dozens of hours of podcasts, visited countless churches and have been educated by Christian institutions. I’ve shared meals with fundamentalists, conservatives and liberals.
