What comes to mind when you think of Abraham Lincoln? I mean besides memories of groaning through history tests in high school about the civil war.

Evidently if you read last week’s post past the headline then you recognize that I don’t truly believe there should be less Christians in the world. I am always quick to let people know that at times, though my message seem critical, it comes from a point of trying to push myself and others to.. read more →
