Network News: Full of Good Stuff

Doug at Witherspoon has just informed us that the latest issue of Network News is on-line. It is full of great articles. I have just had a chance to skim it but found the name of friend and colleague, John Preston, of Utica Presbytery. Bob and I know John. John Preston shared that sacrificial ski chaplaincy with me at Snow Ridge!

John has written a book, Wrestling Until the Dawn. He led a workshop with Dr. Larry Rasmussen regarding worship. Does our worship honor Earth?
