My Single Suitcase

Hello lovely people! My friend Jane Halton asked me to contribute a piece to her Blowing Up Evangelical Baggage series. I'm proud of it and it would be an honor to have you read it. I'll be responding to comments over there, if you're inclined to enter the conversation.  Also, if you're keeping count, you may feel free to consider this your Single Minded Monday for the week. 

Happy Friday, friends.
