When a ball game becomes a blowout in the first half, the conversation shifts to more punditry than play-by-play. So, I thought I would share a few things I’ve learned about SBC blogs from this contest. What does blog madness tell us about SBC bloggers? We like books. Almost everyone played along for a mere […]
From God’s Call to God’s Sanctification: It’s not easy being me. It made no sense. I’d been born-again all of 8 months.

Please go read my response and add any criticism or appreciation you can muster. I won’t be able to follow comments all the comments over there, so you might want to leave them […]

It is a driving force behind the […]
