BlogSwap Debrief

Well, I think the first BlogSwap went exceptionally well. We had eight participants and all but one (I’m looking at you, Ochuk) posted the article that was sent to them. Hopefully that one other guy will do so shortly!

What I am excited about are things like this.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
