Caedmon’s Call – Fans of Caedmon’s Call will want to know that there is a new album on the way…and that those who order now can download it right away.

A History of Phone Etiquette – It is interesting to peer back into history a little bit to see how telephone etiquette took time to develop. That’s something to think about next time you’re on a bus and someone is yacking (very loudly) into his cell phone.

    My Most Common Pastoral Counsel

    Among my responsibilities as an elder/pastor within a local church is meeting with people to offer counsel and guidance.
