A Second Compelling Invitation To Faith Leadership

Wow!

Then, to Northumberland to stand and touch Hadrian’s wall.  I was […]

Kudos to “The Kansas City Star.”  On their front page, and it takes up nearly the whole front page, is “The Alter Boys’ Secret.”  It was even the Sunday paper, December 4, 2011. “Four young lives, innocence lost.  One priest, later sent for treatment.  Decades of silence and secrets.  And finally, revelations as a 30-year […]

Continuing With “Rape is Rape”
