Changes On The Horizon

When I started this blog 2 1/2 years ago, I wanted to cultivate space where I could share my thoughts and reflections on life, faith, and journey.

Instead of debating about heaven and hell, do the hard work of dismantling the hell people live through every day.  Continue reading
