I'VE BEEN TAGGED BY BOBBY VALENTINE!
Bobby Valentine preaches for the Southside congregation in Milwaukee, blogs about living the topsy-turvy life under God’s rulership here and is one of the most challenging Biblical thinkers and writers I’ve been blessed to encounter. As homage to him, and because I’m also a voracious reader, I will imitate his defiance of the numerical stipulations on the following questions. Also, I will make the appropriate disclaimer here: Count the Bible as the primary answer to any question where it would be applicable (1,2,3,4,5,8).
