What Would Jesus Do? Bop You in the Eye.

  Oh, friends. What a difficult time we’re living in. So much disagreement. So much tension. And admittedly, I’m adding to that tension. I am not sorry.

Letting the Imago Go

The night air was surprisingly refreshing when I stepped barefoot onto my cold concrete porch.
