I woke up with a dark cloud over my head this morning. It doesn’t happen often. But when it does, I don’t like it. I don’t like feeling negative one tiny bit. I had a hundred different things swirling in my mind. Things I needed to do. People I needed to contact. Things I didn’t […]

“What’s so great about being a Christian, anyway?” The question hung in the air as I drove back to the office with a group of friends and colleagues after lunch.
