Ready or Not

About a week ago I read this article about the possibility of another larger volcano eruption in Iceland and there is one phrase that just kind of stuck in my head.  It’s stuck in the midst of these final words of the article, There are no clear answers, however, and even fewer predictions about what […]

do we really get REVIVAL?

A few weeks ago I read a really thought provoking post by my friend Geoff Heeg called -> Revival Please* So thought provoking that while I read it I could feel a blog post coming on.  And here it is. Revival. That word is kind of loaded. In it’s neutral form it simply means someone […]
