Christian Dis-Unity and the Exclusivity of Jesus Christ

Ecumenism is the effort to unify the thousands of brands of “Christianity” into one orderly body. It sounds noble, and while unity is a powerful biblical principle, somehow it’s failing in practice.

Getting Older? The Joy of Trading Power for Freedom

My twenty-year old tobacco-colored gelding, Ace, stood quietly while I lumbered up onto a one-step stool carrying the stock saddle I intended to pitch onto his back.
