Do You Have the Time?

Time..don’t run out on me. It’s a phrase that I’ve mentioned often in ministry as being an element that is essential to the development of faith.

We Have Been Experiencing Technical Difficulties

Hence the lack of blogging. We had some issues here with the blog that I wanted to take care of before we started causing all kinds of problems for you readers. But we are back online now and will resume a semi-normal posting feed now.

Say It Ain’t So…

Mary DeTurris Poust is taking her leave from OSV’s Daily Post. She will be missed there but no worries she’s got two new books coming out (slacker!) and more… My busy schedule isn’t the only factor in my leaving, however.
