By Bryan+ Patrick Let’s begin by doing something that our beloved Bishop Chuck used to do all the time: Let’s throw a skunk on the table. My guess is that most of us reading this blog have not taken the time to read the new constitution for our mission society and, unless someone twists your [...]

Lent Reflections: Baring the Soil of My Soul
