  • Guest E-pistle-ists for Michael’s Vacation?

    Michael will be here every Sunday in August and September, God-willing. He’s taking some time away on weekdays. But since his schedule lately has had him away more Sundays than usual (and then he likes), he’ll just stay in the pulpit, even if he’s here every day during the week.
