You wanna know what I love about the word of God, and being able to hear it preached?
Even when I am not very fond of the presenter of the Scripture, God can still speak to me through His Word. If I let go of my attitude, listen and learn.
I also wanted to let you know there are great conversations taking Place in the Christian Gaming Community over at GodsGamers.Org It is a blog owned by JeanneDArcc. You can find devotionals there, and weekly blogging series.
They are tackling topics like:
