The Slowest Process of my Life – Your Stories

Losing my Faith

  I found out yesterday that a local pastor used me in an illustration in one of his recent sermons. This was brought about because the pastor had seen a Facebook conversation or two that I had been in with a friend of mine that attends his church. When I listened to this I expected […]
