Good news? Not in church…

So yesterday’s convention keynote was Doon Wilkins. While his whole address was pretty good, I want to focus on one part of it, because I think it affects the church. We hear a lot in church (not necessarily from the ... Read More »

Why adults don’t like video games?

March 21, 2006 Comments Off on Why adults don’t like video games?

Freakonomics

March 20, 2006 1 Comment »
