My latest article is up at the Veritas Network, a fantastic resource that I’m humbled to have written for:

  1. Wow…
    This just made me think.
    Thank you for reaffirming the fact that death is all around us and is a reality, BUT CHRIST has given us hope if we accept him.
    Very sobering and thought-provoking.
