Fire and Ice

Was reminded of this little beauty the other day. Wanted to share it. It’s become a favorite of mine in recent years.

Reconciling With A Fallen Pastor, Part 2: Stages Of The Fall

In my last post, I talked about prevention. However, most people who find my site are those who want advice after their pastor has fallen morally. Please take the time to read the first post in this series because it will give you some insight into my thinking. I’m not an expert in the academic realm. I do have a… Read more »
