7 Days. 7 Highlights.
As I'm finishing up this post early Friday morning, I'm also finishing off an awesome cup o' joe from Hubbard & Cravens. I'm banking on this coffee to get me through the homestretch to an exciting weekend (a weekend filled with a banquet, an interview for my pastoral ordination process, and preaching on Sunday). What's your go-to energy boost?
Here's my wrap-up of the most interesting stories, studies, and advice from around the internet during this past week. Enjoy!
