Recently the Yale Center for Faith and Culture invited me to campus to discuss secularism and the Jesus-Way.

Yesterday, this is what popped out…thanks for sharing the journey and challenging my own ways of walking with and toward the Savior with you all! 1 December 2104 On a chilly Sunday evening, in a […]
