Something to think about with all the chaos and civil unrest happening right now. Those who are pulling down statues believe as strongly and passionately about their cause as you do about keeping those statues to remember history. They believe in their cause as much - and possibly more - than you do about evangelizing … Continue reading Rethinking the Unrest
