Calvary

Calvary

More Than Platitudes

Written By: Naomi Toms One of the things I love about G. K. Chesterton is a certain beloved theme of his that shines out of basically everything he writes. It can be summed up as this – the beauty, and the wisdom, of seeing things as for the first time. In his words:... read more
