STARS TWINKLING THROUGH THE CRACKS — SALVATION STORY #30

Wow!  It has been a long time since I’ve written — not because there have been no salvation stories, but perhaps because there have been so many of them.  Salvation Stories beginning, unfolding, confusing, challenging, terrifying, encouraging, emerging, disentangling, releasing, unravelling, confounding, baffling, arousing, exacting, imposing, heartbreaking, and continuing  . . . .

WHAT IF GOD WERE ONE OF US? SALVATION STORY #26
