Well, I had a week off last week and resolved to get three things done: 3. Read a book. Not quite done but 165 of the 250 pages done. Simple Church is not Simple.

Before I toddle off for a 'long winter's nap', some words about Christmas. Michael Horton, professor of theology at Westminster … Continue reading Merry Christmas To All & To All a Good Night

I am on holidays starting yesterday. I have … Continue reading Top Three Tuesday: Top Three Things I Want To Get Done
