Practical Theology Blog

I started a second blog that you can link to in the side bar, “Practical Theology.”  I didn’t want to mix all of our family happenings with my thoughts and questions on theology.  The purpose of the blog is two fold.  I want to offer brief summaries to the lessons that I teach throughout the…

Superman @ Super Walmart
