The Sky is the Limit. Or is it?

Thanks, But I’m Not Passing My Baton, I’ll Carry It

For years now I have struggled with hearing statements like, “The older generation should pass the baton to the younger generation” or “I see a generation rising to take their place.”  Now some might argue that there is nothing wrong with these statements, but…

It’s been a fruitful journey of learning these last few years. A journey in which I have had to lean into corrective measures and where I have intentionally sought out feedback on how I’m doing. And one thing I have tried to avoid is…

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Reflections on Psalm 24
