We had a great, and much needed, weekend. Thanks to everyone who helped to make my birthday awesome. Emily and I took it easy all day Saturday. It was good because I actually feel pretty well-rested and ready to go. The next couple weeks are going to get crazy around here. As most of youContinue reading “Surviving a Study Program With EarPlugs, a Hiding Place, and Lots of Coffee.”

Shawn Anthony of Lo-Fi Tribe founded the project this past summer, andContinue reading “The Daily Scribe Project Has Re-Opened”
Here are some posts from around the religious globe of the Daily Scribe.
