Never Fall in Love with a Writer: A Lesson Learned.

April 30, 2013


The rehearsal process for “Never Fall in Love with a Writer” is well underway. Wayne and Jen made an important discovery last week. Like many discoveries, it started with a mistake.

Never Fall in Love With a Writer: Ready for Incarnation

April 10, 2013


The notion that God-the-son became human — that divinity became flesh — is one of the most important doctrines of the Christian faith.
