Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'll admit it: I haven't been to church in ages. It's been so long that I am pretty sure the last time I was in church only the Old Testament existed! I believe in God and I read the Bible on occasion, but overall I do not do much in organized religion. I have a [...]
