Don’t give me oh, just more of the same-ol’, same-ol bullcrap. Really. How are you? How is your soul? What is God teaching you right now? Do you have joy?

Now that we have the ice-breakers out of the way, welcome, once again, one and all, to The Weekly Town Crier. A place where I pass along things I have found interesting throughout the week because I thought you might find them interesting. Then again, you might not. And that’s OK too. It’s cool. I get it. I’m down like that. Yo.
