The Mythical Commission

As the fourth post in the series called Five Myths Keeping Us Legendary, the idea of The Great Commission will be our focus. If you haven’t read the first of these posts, Five Myths Keeping Us Legendary may be a good place to start to help give you the context of this series.

The Prayer Myth

As the second post in the series called Five Myths Keeping Us Legendary, the idea of the Prayer Myth will be our focus.

Prayer Is the Key

Jake Hess has since passed from this life. However, when he was here, he belted out the notes of a song in particular that was burned in my memory at the young age of 6. Read More
