A Deacon’s Musing|Campus Chaplaincy

In my most charming and playful way – of course – I have the great privilege to walk into congregational ministries and ask: So, am I here because you’re tired? Because you want more bums in the pews & more coin in the coffer? And, is it possible, I am also here because you want Read more…
