It’s Been a While

I’ve had some changes in life recently: book about to be published, new apartment, more exercise, better diet. There’s been a lot of good going on, yet my mind gravitates toward the negative. For instance, I have a job interview in a few weeks for what on the surface seems like a better job. ButContinue reading “It’s Been a While”


Something that turns off non-Christians is our obsession with the end of the world and our getting to heaven.
