Wonders to Enjoy

(This is a guest post from my friend and ministry partner, Erik Wolgemuth. Erik and I work together on various projects. Look forward to seeing him on my site from time to time.)  The mountains are in plain view. At their highest, they rise to heights of twelve to...

Don’t Just Sing Christmas Songs

Don’t Just Sing Christmas Songs

The Christmas season is traditionally filled with many things: lights, trees, gifts, snow—if you’re lucky—and songs, loads of songs. I imagine that without much thought you could come up with five Christmas-themed songs right now. “Have a Holy Jolly Christmas”,...
