Technology and Community

by Lee Coleman The vast array of cultural topics we covered in our "Seven Toxic Ideas Polluting Your Mind" Sunday school made for some fantastic discussion, but also left a ton of unfollowed rabbit trails that we just couldn't pursue due to time.

Easter Sunday Temple Model

by Lee Coleman After the closing benediction this past Easter Sunday, I stood up, turned around, and confirmed what my ears had already told me during the closing song: the church was packed.
