Last night we read the story of Abraham and Isaac in our chaotic family devotions. As is typically the case, we spend as much time settling everyone down as we do reading. But afterwords we had a nice chat about why God spared Isaac and didn’t spare Jesus.

Brewing To Continue Soon

Perhaps you can call it a coffee break given the espresso motif of my blog. Whatever you call it, in order to focus on end of semester projects and a looming deadline for my next book, Theolatte will be closed for a few more weeks.
