Well, this is new… Brad the sports writer.

This is new. Yesterday was my birthday. And I think that maybe God gave me a pretty cool gift. As some of you know, I’m a fairly avid fan of MMA… mixed martial arts. And I know that doesn’t make sense to everyone… a pastor who likes MMA? But I love the discipline and focus […]

Rejuvenation

Yesterday I wrote an article called “Tired” that seems to have started some healthy conversation about working hard, finishing what we start and going to bed with a feeling of accomplishment.
