I want to get real with you today. No over-used cliches, catchy one-liners, or bumper sticker theology. I had a blog post about faith and fear all lined up and ready to publish this morning. Then I watched a video yesterday from Todd White, and knew I needed to post something different. We’ll save the […]Read more "Passive Christianity"
