I can't wait to meet David. The shepherd king who poured out his heart using ink on papyrus in such wide sweeping strokes. He expressed emotions high and low and everything in between. The man knew the truth and he counted on it with his very life. He preached himself...

A few weeks ago the Church paused as we do every year and sat still for a moment in the weight of Good Friday. It's a day we are confronted with the overwhelming wreckage of sin and death. We consider its devastation. And we marvel at a Savior who came and swallowed it...

Dear friends, my little fingers have been busy typing for other projects and not as much as I'd like for this blog.

Please forgive the delay here! For whatever reason, four different conferences I was set to attend all fell within ten days of one another (on top of three snow days in a row - which added up to a grand total of 17 for this school year...#isitspringyet?) Maybe I'll fin...
