Wow.  WOW.  I can think of a hundred different excuses for not updating the blog, but in the end they are all lame.  Will you accept a simple apology? We are spending the final three weeks of Lent studying the books of Ezra and Nehemiah (they were originally one book) at MidWeek.  These two books [...]
