This is a week for a lot of other writing, and I won’t be posting the usual Monday, Tuesday, and Friday focus posts for students, pastors, and teachers.
Announcing a new series starting Tuesday: Biblical and Secular Reasons For Man-Woman Marriage This is a series especially for pastors and teachers, to help them help their people know the best thinking on the marriage debate. If you are not a pastor or a teacher, this will still be relevant to you; but please let […]
