Conversations With Peter: The Dynamic Duo and a Sorcerer?

I was preparing to post this week but got distracted, a bit of undiagnosed ADD probably, lol.   Seriously though, I was going to post something about my old youth group being at camp this week and blah,blah, blah, blah, but then at my Life Group last night we talked about letting closed doors alone … More Conversations With Peter: The Dynamic Duo and a Sorcerer?
