Pumpkin Pie

Bread of Life

  • Seeing Christ in others
    So often I find non-religious, totally secular descriptions of a concept to be so much more effective than the stuff published in Christian literature. I offer the following link as an example of how to “See Christ in each and every person I come in contact with.” oh, and why that can be such a […]
  • Thin Places
