It’s time yet again to re-evaluate my beliefs. I’ve let go of a lot of things I once held dear as a kid and I am even a different person in terms of beliefs than who I was a in college so it would be difficult for me to list the things I really believe [...]
This was the old ending to the Young Widows article I wrote in November. I have revised that review if you’d like to check it out. This feeling, this idea of need, not the want to make music, the overwhelming weight of having to make it almost out of compulsion. Almost like the Christian who [...]
Why was Jesus baptized? Genesis 1:1-5 Psalm 29 Acts 19:1-7 Mark 1:4-11 While I was a student at Greenville College, my favorite classes were the ones I took taught by Dr. Scott Neumann of the History department.
