Every year I like to keep a record of the books I've read. Check out 2016's list of fiction, non-fiction and audio.

The final stop was my New York City Church Tour. It's been such a privilege to visit the extended family and learn from what the wider church is doing, just across the pond. In this post, I cover Redeemer and The Journey. Two very different churches but both having a great impact in the city,... Continue Reading →

A story wouldn't be complete without a happy ending. So it would be unfair for me not to complete the story that was one of my popular posts while in Uganda. In the city of Columbus, Ohio, I got to wear one of the most expensive suits I shall ever own rent (it was made... Continue Reading →
