He Steadies the Pillars

It’s a song about judgment. A set time appointed by God when He will “judge with equity.” A time when “a cup with foaming wine” is poured out and the wicked of the earth “shall drain it down to the … Continue reading

Return to Me

What if we have more control over this pandemic season than we think? Not just by keeping our distance, covering our faces, and washing our hands (though I think we should). Not necessarily by sheltering in place and shutting down … Continue reading
