You’re not alone if you’re horrified by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Forgotten Season
We live in a world that likes to act before thinking. “It’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission.” “Shoot first and ask questions later.” Most horrifically, we hear people misguidedly say things like: “Kill them all; let God sort it... Read More
