“Surely God is in this Place – Holy Ground”

So, here is my first attempt at a blog for the summer. I am not quite sure how exactly these things are supposed to work, therefore I would love some feedback from you, my readers (or reader more likely)… The first week of my summer led me to Camp Kum-Ba-Ya down in western Kentucky. Being […]

Radical Hospitality in Alabama

As a native Ohioan who is used to tumultuous storm clouds and trudging through snow, I had to be dragged kicking and screaming to Alabama Northwest Florida’s Beach Camp in Orange Beach, Alabama… Just kidding!
