I love this time of year. BBQ’s in the backyard, meeting friends at the lake, a lazy float down the river, or a cool evening ride with some buddies, are just some of the ways that we recharge our batteries during the summer months. Similarly we gather together to unite our voices in praise, our […]
“Who are you?” This is a simple question to ask but not so simple to answer. It gets at the core of our identity, which is a complex thing. Many of us piece our identity together, with aspects from every stage of our life fused into a collage. Some of us don’t know the answer, […]
