This has been a tough week. I’ve been a pastor for 18 years, and in that time I’ve dealt with a lot of death. It kinda comes with the calling. This week has been different.

Thank God for Texting

I do a lot of my pastoral check ups via various messaging apps. There are times when I feel guilty about that, but today is not one of those times.
