Metalhead - Alternate Take

Kent Webber
Metalhead - Alternate Take
As Christians, we are living in light of Easter. But, we must remember that there is no resurrection and ascension without the despair and death of Christ. When we functionally attempt to circumvent the soul crushing grief of others, we become a curse to our neighbor by denying the savior we profess to adore...

Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Wells
In spite of all his creativity as a storyteller, the stories he told were almost all adaptations of others' works.
