As I was growing up, I was a competitive swimmer. From the time that I was 10 until 18, I swam as part of several clubs and school teams. At Eastern High School, the school that I went to from my earliest days, there was a poster that hung on the wall. It was a […]

Our church in Colorado recently sent out a newsletter that included a link to a conference called the Multiply Vineyard Summit.
