      I have just followed your blog…and I so appreciate your stories on the way Christ has moved in your journey, but also your outline of systematic theology. Fascinating.

      Thank you so much for your encouragement. Means a lot to me. Great to know brothers & sisters in Christ – even in the blog world!

      Romans 6:3-4; read this this morning and I found it incredibly encouraging. THIS IS WHY WE NEED JESUS.
