A Slice of heaven…

Anytime you’re having a bad day, wander on over to Slice of Laodicea. There’s bits of good stuff there, but when you read it you can’t help but think of the village spinster sitting in her rocking chair by the front window, watching the street to find things to overreact to. Ingrid and Co. are always going off the deep end about important things, and usually tend to alienate the people they’re trying to serve. Case in point: CCM.
