Book Launch
Long before I found a publisher for my book, The Middle Of Things , I dreamed about the party I would throw when I finally found a home for the manuscript. The reality of planning such a party couldn’t quite match the grand plans I made to distract myself f...

What love can do
Chapel Hill Mennonite Fellowship July 9, 2017 Genesis 24:34-38, 42-49, 58-67 I told Isaac after the service last week that a more fitting lyric for his sermon, in contrast to the Chance the Rapper line, “the praises go up/the blessings come down,” would hav...
