Battle for Souls- It Is Finished


Can I tell you a story? You’re still reading so I am guessing the answer is “Yes”. About 31 years ago I met a kid down the street. We were Maverick and Iceman, we were GI Joe’s, we were the Street Bike Gang, we were Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. We came from different homes, different backgrounds, different trajectories, but here we are. Let me … Continue reading Battle for Souls- It Is Finished

I wonder if you truly understand what Christmas really means. And no, by now, we surely know that it’s not about Santa Claus or presents. But what does a newborn baby … Continue reading The Recklessness of Christmas
