Want to read Proverbs with us?

Is it a sin not to go to church?
The convenience of a streaming church service is a double-edged sword. Indispensable to those who cannot leave their bed, but a tool of temptation for the devil. I heard that whisper this morning: Why get up so early? It's cold and you deserve a break, and who will notice you anyway? Whether you go or stay won't... Continue Reading →
Sharing A Seed
Tonight I met up with a dear friend who lives abroad, but with whom things never seem to change no matter how long between visits. We shared the stories of the past 8 years of our lives over two enormous vanilla lattes. (I'm convinced that I could die happily in a cozy corner of a... Continue Reading →
