Who Am I?
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 NKJV I was the Executive Pastor at a local church for 5 years. I was grateful; I knew this was not something easily attained...
Liminality: The In-Between Space
