The Paradox of Legacy

Yesterday, R.C. Sproul left this earth and went to be with the Lord that he had served for over 60 years.  Having never met the man, his death still struck me as a great shift.  Almost immediately after the announcement, I began seeing letters and tributes flood in all over social media, from other men […]

For the last I don’t know how many years, if you wanted to buy a car, you basically had two options: you either bought it with cash or a loan, or you leased it.  Leasing has always been confusing to me, since you still have payments, you can’t drive the thing as much, and at […]
