Run With Me


And Here is the Steeple 2

When I say we meet on the trail by the river, I mean that is where we arrive en masse. To suggest something akin to fellowship happens there, at the park, in the ink of early morning, is disingenuous. We are, however, like something of a congregation. We arrive in […]
