Mere Christianity, Mere Orthodoxy — Questions from M

Everyone has a calling. Mine has been to educate Socratically, best I could.

Christianity: the Rumor that is True — Questions from M

She was an odd child who always seemed to know what was happening. I recall standing with her in Clendenin Elementary School and hearing the fire alarm go off in town. “The high school is on fire,” she said. When I got home, my mom told me Herbert Hoover High (yes, the real name) had [Read More…]
