Read Pastor Richenda Fairhurst's Just Creation substack blog for more news, boosts, and updates. As PastorRichenda says, "My updates are not endorsements, and links are usually third party. Please make your own determinations. My goal here is to amplify the conversation and encourage engagement, learning, and resilience. And of course, to bless your efforts!" This caveat is true for my RogueValleyVoice blog too.
