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.

Walking out of our lovely, in-person commencement ceremonies last month, I found myself humming a classic hymn of the faith, thanks to Stewart Foster, talented organist from the Royal Poinciana Chapel in Palm Beach.
