I was thrilled to turn fifteen, because I knew six months after my birthday I would be able to get my learner’s permit. In Virginia, fifteen years and six months is the proper age students are able to get their permit.

It’s a strange time to honor God in our relationships. Everywhere I look there are disagreements infecting our community like the very issues (dare I say, VIRUS) we are disagreeing about.
