Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 


I’m trying to write about something here that I’m just barely starting to grasp. It feels like I’m experiencing the same theological battles that have divided Christians from one another – going on inside of my own soul. I’m just now starting to learn some words and concepts to attach to what I’ve been strugglingContinue reading “Battles”
