Who’s in Charge Here?

Who's in Charge Here?

It ended almost 24 hours ago but my heart is still beating. I honestly re-watched the entire UVA Duke game about three times last night. I watched it a few times while I was finishing up this sermon as you might be able to tell. My heart was still beating with excitement and joy when […]
