posted by xscot mcknight

I am impressed with how Peter seeks to provide a mental apparatus for his readers on how to cope with opposition to Jesus and the Church. They are to be nourished by feasting on the Lord (1 Pet 2:3), and […]

Do you remember your first…

Cell phone? I do. I got it last Friday. I’ve not had a good relation with cell phones. We got Kris one of those boxy cell phones years ago so she would have an emergency phone should you need it […]
