When I was 15 years old, I spent Memorial Day Weekend at a bible camp in the middle of nowhere. Near the back of the main hall, envelopes with each person’s name scribbled in Sharpie marker were taped to a wall. The pastor told us to write “encouragement cards” to our friends. By the end of the weekend, there were approximately zero encouragement cards waiting for me in my envelope.
So I’d be lying if I said I was nervous about soliciting questions for a mailbag column on this blog. “Will anyone actually submit anything?” I asked myself. “Or will this be bible camp all over again?”
OK, fine. I added a question that I wanted to answer. But after asking very nicely, I also heard from a few of you. So with that, onto the (first ever) mailbag!
