    Saying Yes to God (and would you pray?)

    I said yes to God a few years ago when “out of the blue,” my mailman showed up on my front porch and asked me to help with a jail ministry. (You can read the mailman story here.) Tonight I’m headed back to the Blue Ridge Regional Jail to meet with a small group of [...]
