The Rev. David Minnick
May 17 2015

One day last January, I shuffled along the icy sidewalk and climbed over the snowbank to get my mail out of the mailbox.   It was one of those days when many of my monthly bills arrived and I opened each envelope quickly while I was focused on some other things, taking a peek at the amount owed.   I opened one and gasped at the amount, before...
