As one of fifty online writers chosen to review "God and the Gay Christian" by Matthew Vines prior to publication, I admit, I had some preconceptions. I thought I would be reading a book by a "progressive … [Read More...]
Pastor Pillow here!
First, our apologies for the huge mess around here. I swear all this dust is from sheetrock, not pet coke.
