How not to introduce your spouse to the new church…

About this time last year, my blogging was pretty quiet. I was in the midst of searching for a call, and I didn’t want to say a whole lot. In a previous post, I started writing some of the things I would have written a year ago. And I promised this story: how not to [...]
